The Saudi foreign ministry called the use of "immediately release" in Canada's tweet "unfortunate, reprehensible, and unacceptable in relations between states."

It called Canada's characterization of the activists "an incorrect claim" and called Canada's attitude "surprising."

"Any other attempt to interfere with our internal affairs from Canada, means that we are allowed to interfere in Canada's internal affairs," it said.

Global Affairs Canada told The Canadian Press on Sunday night it was aware of the issue but offered no immediate comment.

Saudi Arabia also said it was freezing all new trade and investment transactions with Canada and "reserves its right to take further action."

It said it will not accept any form of interference in its internal affairs and considers the Canadian position "an attack" requiring a firm stance to deter who "attempts to undermine the sovereignty of the KSA."
