Canada and Saudi Arabia have agreed to restore full diplomatic ties.

The Saudi Foreign Ministry in a statement said the decision comes after a discussion between Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Bangkok in November last year.

The Canadian foreign ministry said that Jean-Philippe Linteau would be the new ambassador to the Kingdom.
