Saudi bin Salman sidelined in G20 family photo

Saudi Crown Prince receives 'firm message' on Khashoggi probe at G20 summit

Saudi Arabia's public prosecutor has said MbS knew nothing of the operation to kill Khashoggi.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Putin clasped each other's hands and smiled widely as they greeted each other Friday.

Less than two months after Saudi Arabia outraged allies when a hit team murdered Jamal Khashoggi in the kingdom's Istanbul consulate, Prince Mohammed flew into Buenos Aires to take his place among leaders of the top 20 global economies, a sign that he intends to remain firmly in charge.

The decision of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) to attend the G20 summit in Buenos Aires and, immediately before that, make a series of visits to friendly Arab states is evidence that he considers his personal position secure following the acknowledgement that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on 2 October.

Further in the clip, which lasts one-minute and was posted on Twitter, Mr Macron rebukes the Saudi leader for not appreciating his advice.

The world will have to wait a little longer for an update on how Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are getting on. However, the president has indicated that he has no plans to punish the Saudi Crown Prince for the Washington Post journalist's grisly death, stressing that the U.S. Saudi relationship - and giving up "hundreds of billions of dollars" - was just too high a price to pay.

Furthermore, the English-language Saudi Gazette shared a video of the meeting reportedly showing a cryptic exchange between the pair on the killing of Khashoggi.

So, maybe, it can be true. "I think I just twisted my ankle, but it's like every game, it's the same". Chelsea will be without Eden Hazard as they look to secure first place in their Europa League group.

Macron, undeterred and continuing on with the conversation, later says, "I'm a man of my word".

The prince was also seen chatting with President Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka, although in a nod to USA domestic outrage over Saudi Arabia, the White House downplayed the encounter.

An official from Macron's office said the meeting with bin Salman was necessary, as European nations wished to send a united message about the need for honesty in the investigation and were not going to sidestep an opportunity to reinforce that message during the G20 summit.

A White House official confirmed the two exchanged pleasantries during a leaders' session.

However, the US Senate is less enthusiastic about Saudi relations, voting this week to end support for the Saudi coalition in the war in Yemen.

Meanwhile, hundreds of people, including protesters from anti-capitalist and rights groups, held multiple rallies against the summit, slamming US President Donald Trump, among other key figures, for what they called failing to address a broad range of issues, including climate change, poverty and immigration.
