US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held telephone talks with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland. This is reported on the website of the State Department.

According to the report, one of the main topics was Ukrainian issue.

"They discussed the dispute between Saudi Arabia and Canada over Canada's call for the release of activists, and the secretary also discussed Iran and Ukraine," the US State Department reported.

Earlier it was reported that Saudi Arabia was freezing new trade and investment ties with Canada. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs withdrawn its ambassador from Canada.

The reason for this decision, obviously, was Canada's response to the detention of public activists in Saudi Arabia. We recall, in May in the country were detained six activists fighting for the rights of women.

On August 3, the Canadian Foreign Ministry on Twitter expressed "serious concern about the arrests of civil activists and women's rights fighters in Saudi Arabia."
