Trudeau not among world leaders meeting with Saudi Crown prince at G20

This comes in the wake of a recent Central Intelligence Agency report which claimed that the orders to kill Khashoggi came from the highest levels of Saudi government, involving the Crown Prince himself.

Local officials in a Washington neighborhood have voted to rename a street outside Saudi Arabia's embassy in honor of slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The visit is also expected to boost various bilateral workshops emanating from the 13th Algerian-Saudi Joint Committee held in Riyadh in April, which resulted in the signing of several cooperation agreements. The revelation comes a few days after the newspaper reported that the Central Intelligence Agency had concluded Prince Mohammed had likely personally ordered the killing. "That is an accurate statement, it is an important statement, and it is a statement that we are making publicly today".

"We are going to survey together the market situation with Saudi Arabia and respond to it operationally", he said.

"Accountability for the murder of Khashoggi stands alone".

But a group of prominent journalists and intellectuals has issued an open letter protesting against his visit, saying it was "unethical and politically inappropriate".

We expect that President Erdogan was given the word to "lighten up" on the Crown Prince.

Erdogan said the Saudis have refused to help Turkish prosecutors who sought information including the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body and the identities of accomplices said to have supported the visiting Saudi hit squad.

Qahtani has emerged as a key player in the killing and a compelling link to the prince.

The French government said the video showed 'a sort of contrast between the prince's face sporting an embarrassed smile and the president's face, which was rather stern and was keen to convey these messages in a very firm manner'.

The assessment also details communication between the crown prince and his associates in August 2017 about how to trap Khashoggi.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo walks with Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir in Riyadh, Oct. 16, 2018. Putin said in October he lacked information about the matter and said Russian Federation would not tear up its relations with Saudi Arabia because of it. Qahtani is the man who supervised the 15-person team that was responsible for killing Khashoggi, a critic of Saudi Arabia's leadership, on October 2.
