Trudo said last month that if Canada determines that these weapons are being abused, it may freeze the relevant export license.

Trudo said in an interview with CTV: "We are studying export licenses and trying to see if there is a way These cars are no longer exported to Saudi Arabia." But he did not disclose more details.

The report pointed out that Trudeau’s political opponents insisted that Trudeau should end the general power agreement negotiated by the Conservative government before the murder of journalist Kasuki and Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the Yemeni war.

Since the diplomatic dispute between the two sides on human rights issues earlier this year, the relationship between Ottawa and Riyadh has been tense . The Canadian side said that when Kashoji was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Canada has been taking measures to negotiate with the allies.

Trudo said: "It is absolutely unacceptable to murder a journalist. This is why Canada has asked Saudi Arabia to provide answers and solutions from the very beginning."
