On Thursday, Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said the current diplomatic spat between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and Ottawa would not affect Saudi oil sales to Canada.
Of course not. That’s money we pay them. Everything action they’ve take so far affects only money they send us.
The Saudis aren’t stupid. We get about 15 per cent of our foreign oil from them; between $4 billion and $5 billion a year.
