Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir speaks during a joint news conference with his Jordanian counterpart Nasser Judeh at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Amman, Jordan, July 9, 2015.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 A.M.) – Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir stated during a session at the Council on Foreign Relations that Canada should apologize for demanding the release of activists from the Saudi prisons.

“It is outrageous, from our perspective, that a country will sit there and lecture us and make demands… What are we, a banana republic? Would any country accept this? No, we don’t. You do this, you play into the hands of the extremists who are opposing our reform process,” he began.

“If we don’t take steps, it means that we are weak. If we take steps, we damage the relationship with a friendly country. We didn’t do this, you did. Fix it. You owe us an apology,” Jubeir continued.

“It is very easy to fix, apologize, say you made a mistake,” Jubeir stressed.

Canada and Saudi Arabia currently have strained relations after the former demanded the Gulf kingdom release several human rights activists from their prisons.

Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir, everyone knows what KSA is…there is no doubt. We all also know what you are. We cannot say what you are, because this comment board won’t let us use such language. The nicest thing one could say is that you are filthy, lying, murdering, Zionist scum, excreted from Khazarian orifices.
