Canada and Saudi Arabia have agreed to name new ambassadors nearly five years after a diplomatic conflict halted relations and strained trade between the two countries.

Global Affairs Canada (GAC) released a statement Wednesday announcing the decision. The news was first reported by Reuters.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in November.

GAC’s statement suggests the two leaders discussed restoring relations at that time.
