  • At G-20 And At Home, A Test For Saudi's Crown Prince: Can He Survive Khashoggi Fallout?

May met leaders including the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, the Australian prime minister, Scott Morrison, and the Japanese prime minister, Shinzō Abe, all of whom expressed some scepticism about the state of her Brexit deal.

The CIA has not committed on the report, but Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterated that he has seen all the intelligence possessed by the USA on the killing of Khashoggi there is no direct evidence linking Prince Mohammed to the incident.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan demanded on Saturday, 3 December, that Saudi Arabia extradite suspects in the killing in Istanbul of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, saying the kingdom was not cooperating.

It said Prince Mohammed was "responsible for the death of a large number of children and civilians in Yemen" as well as that of Khashoggi.

The Saudi leader appeared to have no such awkwardness with Russian President Vladimir Putin, however.

The statement came after Pompeo and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told the Senate that weakening of ties between the United States and Saudi Arabia over the killing would adversely affect the national security of America.

According to the lawsuit, Omar Abdulaziz, a sharp online critic of the Saudi royals and a resident of Canada where he has received asylum, said he was friends with Khashoggi and worked with him on a project meant to rein in pro-monarchy Saudi trolls. The announcement was made in the presence of the Crown Prince and the Mauritanian president.

Trump also tweeted about the situation Wednesday, suggesting the USA should consider imposing tariffs on imported cars . Jawboning aside, Trump was unable to stop job losses at a Carrier Corp. air-conditioning plant in Indianapolis.

It said the 81-year-old president, whose health has been fragile since he suffered a stroke in 2013 and is rarely seen in public, was "in bed with a heavy flu".

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.

Saudi Ambassador to Algeria Abdulaziz Al-Omairini said the visit stresses the deep-rooted relations between the two countries and the joint action to develop them in all fields.

In the end, they were not.

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.

The federal prosecutor's office assigned to review the case had not announced whether a formal investigation would be opened by the close of the summit on Saturday.
