Canada welcomes U.S. sanctions on Saudis, says considering similar action

OTTAWA, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland on Thursday welcomed U.S. Treasury sanctions on 17 Saudi officials for their role in the killing last month of Jamal Khashoggi, and said Canada was weighing similar action.

"Canada welcomes the U.S. action," Freeland told reporters today after touring a factory in Port Colborne, Ontario. Canada will be "actively considering" similar sanctions in coming days, she added. (Reporting by Steve Scherer; Editing by David Gregorio)
