The ministry also announced "the freezing of all new trade and investment transactions with Canada while retaining its right to take further action".
"Any other attempt to interfere with our internal affairs from Canada, means that we are allowed to interfere in Canada's internal affairs", the Saudi ministry's said.
Saudi Arabia has apparently threatened a 9/11-style aircraft attack on Canada in an astonishing tweet.
The move, which underscores a newly aggressive foreign policy led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, came after Canada demanded the immediate release of human rights campaigners swept up in a new crackdown.
Amnesty International has said Badawi, the sister of jailed blogger Raif Badawi, was recently detained along with Nassima al-Sada, another prominent female activist. Saudi Arabia also froze all trade with Canada and, according to the Saudi government-owned Al-Arabiya news agency, will transfer all students studying in Canada to other countries. Freeland declined to comment on Horak's exact location and would only say he was doing fine. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers were citizens of Saudi Arabia, and Saudi royals have always been accused of complicity in the attack.

He said that the authorities in Saudi Arabia made it clear that those arrested committed legal violations that necessitated law enforcement.
At the same time, it sends a strong message to European and Middle Eastern countries not to "mess" with Saudi Arabia, Juneau said.
The report also said all Saudi Arabian students now studying in Canada will be transferred to other countries. Fifteen of hijackers were Saudi nationals.
The diplomatic row erupted after Canada tweeted about a recent arrest in Saudi Arabia.
All of which is to say that maybe the United States, 17 years after 9/11 and the missing 28 pages, should really, finally, reconsider its relationship to the repressive, Al Qaeda-dealing Saudi regime.
