Trudeau not among world leaders meeting with Saudi Crown prince at G20

Bin Salman maintains that he knew nothing of the plot to kill Khashoggi, despite a Central Intelligence Agency investigation determining the crown prince was instrumental in orchestrating the alleged murder.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he brought up the Khashoggi issue while at the Summit.

Rachel Bronson, the author of Thicker Than Oil: America's Uneasy Partnership with Saudi Arabia, says the crown prince's missteps have hurt Saudi Arabia's reputation, which has no doubt upset many in the royal family.

"I spoke to the crown prince to highlight our concerns and the need for better answers on the killing of Khashoggi and the need for cease fire in Yemen", Trudeau said.

In a later meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Mrs May will also discuss the progress of Turkey's investigation into the Khashoggi killing in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October.

It is not yet known whether MBS will also meet with ailing President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who is rarely seen in public.

The Turkish president said it was essential that the suspects detained by the Saudi authorities should be extradited to face trial in Turkey. That being said, we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi.

Communications that the United States intercepted in July show that Mohammed had asked senior Saudi intelligence officials about the status of a plan to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia, according to one intelligence official.

The list of named individuals does not include Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman , who is in Argentina for the G20 summit . The other four Republicans who voted against the resolution to allow a Senate vote on the issue were Sens.

The trip is a reflection of the strong fraternal ties that bind Algeria and Saudi Arabia, it added.

Riyadh initially said that Khashoggi had died in a scuffle at the consulate, however, later claimed that the writer had been murdered in a rogue operation.

Khashoggi was given a lethal injection after a struggle. His body is believed to have been dismembered.

In a statement obtained by AFP, 17 prominent journalists and intellectuals sharply criticised the Saudi leader.

Earlier this month, the United States imposed its own sanctions on Saudi officials for the same reason.

But he fell out of favour and went into self-imposed exile in the U.S. a year ago.

And the looks were backed up with actions as Mrs May demanded bin Salaman - increasingly referred to as MSB - take action over the death of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi during a heated meeting at the G20 summit. Qahtani served as the royal court adviser but fired shortly after Khashoggi's death.
