Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir on Monday criticised Canada's calls to free arrested civil society activists as a position built on "misleading" information and said his country would not tolerate any interference in its own affairs.

"The kingdom of Saudi Arabia does not interfere in the internal affairs of other states and it won't accept any attempt to interfere in our internal affairs," Jubeir said in remarks on his Twitter account. "We deal with that with all firmness."

Describing Canada's position was puzzling, he said that those held in Saudi Arabia were "subject to Saudi legal laws that guarantee their rights".
