Hearty handshake between Putin and Saudi crown prince goes viral

  • Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and French President Emmanuel Macron

"Don't worry", Prince Mohammed is heard saying in English to the French leader, who responds, "I do worry". "When we degrade ourselves by not focusing on the moral values, what it does is send a signal to the world that there's only one thing we care about and that is money".

French President Emmanuel Macron told Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Europeans will insist on worldwide experts being part of the investigations into a Saudi journalist's murder, an Elysee official said on Friday.

"They exchanged pleasantries at the leaders' session as he did with almost every leader in attendance", the White House official said on Friday.

The meetings took place at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina - a meeting clouded by concerns over the gruesome killing of the Saudi journalist.

In a video posted by the Saudi Gazette newspaper the two leaders can be seen speaking in hushed tones with their heads close together.

The Elysee official said it was the first time Mr Macron and the Crown Prince, known as MbS, had spoken since Khashoggi's murder at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

However, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prince Mohammed later exchanged a high-five and a handshake and laughed heartily as they took seats next to each other in the main meeting room. But with the agency not publicly stating so, Trump has attempted to deflect blame away from the crown prince.

The prime minister had told reporters on the flight to Buenos Aires that she would speak to the crown prince about Mr Khashoggi's death and the situation in Yemen.

Russian media reported Friday that Putin and Trump might chat briefly on the sidelines of the G-20, though a White House official said later that there was no plan for a pull-aside meeting between the two men.

Proposed US congressional legislation on Yemen, even if passed, is unlikely to impact on Saudi Arabia's ability to pursue the war in Yemen due to available Egyptian, Emerati, and Israeli support.

The US president cancelled a formal sit-down with Mr Putin at the summit in Argentina over Moscow's seizure of Ukrainian vessels.

Ms Merkel said she would address the Russia/Ukraine stand-off during their discussions, a crisis she has blamed "entirely" on Russia.

Before the G20 formally started, Mr Trump joined the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto to sign the deal that will replace NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement). The deal still needs to win congressional approval in Washington.
