Saudi Crown Prince to visit Algeria on Sunday

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman met Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of G20 summit in Argentina on Saturday and discussed areas of cooperation including rebalancing the world oil market, Reuters reported citing the Saudi Press Agency.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan demanded Saturday that Saudi Arabia extradite suspects in the killing in Istanbul of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, taking to task the kingdom's crown prince who was basking in his quick return to the world stage at the G20.

The crown prince is in Argentina for the G20 Summit with Turkish, American and Canadian officials also in attendance.

President Trump "exchanged pleasantries" with the crown prince, according to a senior White House official, but there was no formal meeting scheduled between the two leaders.

He underlined that neither the Islamic world nor the global community would be satisfied until the revealing of all those responsible for the killing. That being said, we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi.

Algiers also has strong ties with Qatar, with which Saudi Arabia and three other Arab states severed trade and transport ties in June 2017, accusing it of supporting terrorism and Iran.

Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist working for The Washington Post, was killed shortly after he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Secretary General of the leftist Workers' Party Louisa Hanoun called Prince Mohammed's visit a "provocation".

Erdogan also said Prince Mohammed had sent his chief prosecutor to Turkey to investigate the Khashoggi killing, but the prosecutor failed to share information with Turkey.

Prince Mohammed's case was not helped by the leak of a Central Intelligence Agency report saying he sent 11 messages to Saud al-Qahtani - a former close aide - at the time Khashoggi was killed.

"There is no direct reporting connecting the crown prince to the order to murder Jamal Khashoggi", Al Jazeera quoted Pompeo as saying.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is seen behind a military band upon his arrival at Algiers International Airport on December 2, 2018. He says the kingdom is an important ally that has helped keep oil prices low. Saudi Arabia's acknowledgement that the journalist had been killed in a fight inside the consulate came after two weeks of denials and growing pressure from Western allies to provide explanations.
