HRW Claims Saudi Crown Prince Moves to Embassy as Prosecutors Start Probe

US President Donald Trump and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman greeted each other during the line up for the group photo prior to the start of the G20 leaders' session which convened on Friday at Costa Salguero in the Argentinian capital, Buenos Aires.

Democratic Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey said Friday that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman own President Donald Trump and can do whatever they want.

The Crown Prince, Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler, has denied any involvement in the murder, but U.S. intelligence officials believe he directed the operation.

In the video, Prince Mohammed, also known as MBS, can be heard telling the French leader not to worry, to which he replies: "I am worried". With the latter conflict ongoing for more than three years, one wonders if in the past Macron hasn't been firm enough, or maybe the Saudi prince isn't quite as honorable as he claims.

Putin and bin Salman are among the two most controversial figures at the summit in Buenos Aires, having both come under worldwide criticism recently, and they seemed to bond over the shared experience.

Some have noticed Trump seems to be keeping his distance from the two leaders so far, but he will reportedly have a impromptu meeting with Putin at some point before the summit is finished. "You never listen to me".


During the meeting, the two sides discussed the horizons of bilateral cooperation between the two friendly countries in the various political, security, economic, investment, agricultural, energy, cultural, and technological fields, Saudi Press Agency reported.

It is unclear what the subject of the snatched conversation is, but the Khashoggi murder and the threat of mass starvation in Yemen have cast a heavy shadow over the crown prince's attendance at the meeting of the world's 20 biggest economies.

However, the US Senate is less enthusiastic about Saudi relations, voting this week to end support for the Saudi coalition in the war in Yemen.

A senior White House official said the two exchanged pleasantries.

Ms Merkel said she would address the Russia/Ukraine stand-off during their discussions, a crisis she has blamed "entirely" on Russia. The deal still needs to win congressional approval in Washington.
