Okay, you can exclude the United States and the United Kingdom. They're what people used to call "fair weather friends." If you can't count on their support for something relatively inconsequential such as the Saudi crown prince's hissy fit against Canada you know they'll be nowhere to be found if something really serious befalls our nation.
The European Union, however, has done what London and Washington did not.
The European Union has asked Saudi Arabia to shed light on the arrests and charges facing women human rights activists, saying that the detainees should be granted due process to defend themselves.
Saudi Arabia has in recent months detained several women's rights activists, some of whom had campaigned for the right to drive and an end to the kingdom's male guardianship system.
"The EU has been engaging constructively with the Saudi authorities seeking clarification on the circumstances surrounding the arrests of women human rights defenders in Saudi Arabia, notably with regard to the specific accusations brought against them," spokeswoman for EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.
"We have been emphasising the relevance of the role of human rights defenders and civil society groups in the process of reform which the Kingdom is pursuing as well as the importance of respecting the rules of due process for all those arrested," she said.
Earlier on Saturday, Mogherini spoke to Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland on the phone, with both sides agreeing to intensify their cooperation in human rights as well as other areas.Knowing which nations can be counted on and which cannot is going to be increasingly vital in the near future. Things like this Saudi tiff can be a real litmus test of affinity.
