Saudi Crown Prince sidelined in G20 family photo

Vladimir Putin and the Saudi crown prince greet each other like old friends

Trudeau also indicated Saturday that he spoke directly with Saudi Arabia's crown prince on the sidelines of a dinner offered by Argentina that was held on Friday night.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan demanded Saturday that Saudi Arabia extradite suspects in the killing in Istanbul of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, taking to task the kingdom's crown prince who was basking in his quick return to the world stage at the G20.

"Whoever has ordered and implemented this violent crime should be found out at once".

"Despite Saudi denials, the killing was revealed due to Ankara's determined stance", he said.

The prince told world leaders that "unless the crime is proven, you can not blame Saudi Arabia", Erdogan quoted him as saying.

"For me, it is obvious that this is an issue that concerns not just Canada but a number of our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies", Trudeau said Saturday.

"Of course, that might be valid from a legal point of view", Erdogan said.

Trudeau said he also brought up the need for better answers on the killing of journalist Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the ongoing imprisonment of Raif Badawi, as well as the need for an immediate ceasefire and humanitarian aid in Yemen.

Three of them, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron, said publicly they had pressed Prince Mohammed for a full investigation into the murder.

New cases of HIV rise in Eastern Europe
The momentum to revamp political commitment to end AIDS by 2030 has never been so strong in the European Region. Every second person diagnosed with HIV has already reached an advanced stage in the infection.

"To me, we've got a relationship with a country that's a semi-important country and a semi-important ally".

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

Meanwhile Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has told CNN that he saw all the intelligence held by the USA on the killing and said there was no direct evidence linking Prince Mohammed to the murder.

He added that the murder had been a test for the whole world, but insisted he did not want to damage the Saudi royal family. "There is no direct reporting connecting the crown prince to the order to murder Jamal Khashoggi", Al Jazeera quoted Pompeo as saying.

Still, MBS sent at least 11 messages to his closest adviser - who oversaw the team that killed Khashoggi - in the hours before and after the journalist's death, according to a classified Central Intelligence Agency assessment seen by the Wall Street Journal.

Citing portions of the CIA's written assessment, the Wall Street Journal first reported on Saturday that Mohammed had sent at least 11 messages to Qahtani before and after the killing.

Mohammed bin Salman and Vladimir Putin were photographed shaking hands before a formal sit-down meeting at the G20 Summit, just a day after the pair were seen greeting each other with a high five.

Putin said he had agreed with Prince Mohammed to renew a pact on cutting oil production by their two nations, the world's leading exporters of crude.
