Justin Trudeau avoids confrontation with Saudi crown prince, Putin at G20 summit

He also spoke with Prince Mohammed about the ongoing situation in Yemen and affirmed France's commitment to supporting a political solution to the conflict. "We're aiming to keep that relationship", he said.

The Saudi government has admitted that its officials were responsible for the murder of Khashoggi, who was a US resident and a columnist for The Washington Post, but Saudi Arabia claims that the crown prince was not responsible.

The PM is using the G20 gathering to push her "global Britain" message, telling fellow leaders that her Brexit deal will be good for the world economy. In fact, Trump even cancelled a formal sit-down with Putin over Moscow's seizure of Ukrainian vessels.

After a number of explanations, Saudi authorities say Mr Khashoggi was given a lethal injection and then dismembered in a botched operation to get him back to the middle eastern country.

G20 leaders were due to discuss climate change at the morning session of their summit on Saturday and negotiations on a draft communique were expected to last until the final minute, a spokesperson for the Argentine G20 sherpa said.

Mohammed has appeared isolated among fellow world leaders at the G20 summit in Argentina, with the exception of a vigorous public handshake from Russia's Vladimir Putin - himself treated as a pariah by some of those present.

The crown prince's father, King Salman, has publicly backed MBS over recent weeks, and the royal family appears to have publicly accepted that MBS and his succession can not be challenged without seriously disrupting the internal stability of the family and, by extension, the state.

During the course of the day, President Trump "exchanged pleasantries" with Salman, telling reporters that while they didn't talk about hot-button issues concerning the USA and Saudi Arabia, it was possible the pair would do so as the summit rolled on.

President Donald Trump has also denied USA media reports that the Central Intelligence Agency believes such an operation would have needed the approval of Prince Mohammed, known as MBS.

It has also ruined Prince Mohammed's worldwide public image. He also pushed the issue of imprisoned human rights workers and the "humanitarian catastrophe" from violence in Yemen.
