Saudi Crown Prince meets Russia's President Putin; discusses oil market rebalancing

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

The CIA has reportedly concluded the order to kill Jamal Khashoggi was given by Crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

He said Crown Prince Mohammed had given world leaders at the G20 summit an "unbelievable explanation" of the situation, by arguing that Saudi Arabia could not be blamed unless the crime was proven.

Algerian Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia was present at the airport to receive the Saudi Crown Prince.

"We have never seen this as a political issue".

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.

Salman, who has been accused by the global community of ordering the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and Putin, who has faced claims he ordered the nerve attack on Sergei Skripal in Britain, were pictured hand-in-hand during the second day in Buenos Aires.

According to the highly classified Central Intelligence Agency report cited by The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) on Saturday, Saudi Arabia' de facto leader, known by media as MBS, sent Saud al-Qahtani, a top servant who was later sacked, at least 11 messages at the time of the crime.

Congress, while Lopez Obrador's Morena party, which holds a majority in Mexico's Senate, may also seek revisions. At the USMCA signing ceremony, Trudeau attempted to press the US president on steel and aluminum tariffs.

The CIA has rated its assessment that Mohammed was involved in the killing at "medium-to-high confidence", and privately, officials have said it is inconceivable that the prince, who exercises total authority over the government, could not have known about such an audacious operation.

Turkey insists that Saudi Arabia should extradite those responsible for the murder, Erdogan reiterated.

On Friday, a group of students called for nationwide protests to prevent the Saudi Crown Prince from setting foot on the "pure Mauritanian soil". The Prime Minister told bin Salman there needed to "be full transparency about exactly what had happened" following the death of Jamal Khashoggi.

Saudi Arabia has been a major provider of economic assistance to Mauritania since the days of King Faisal, who visited the North African country in 1972, 12 years after it gained independence from France.

Prince Mohammed: "It's OK".

Speaking during her flight to Buenos Aires, May said she "intends" to speak with Mohammed bin Salman.

Saudi Arabia, while at first denying any role in the journalist's death, has since acknowledged that he was killed inside the consulate.
