Saudi Crown Prince receives 'firm message' on Khashoggi probe at G20 summit

Saudi Crown Prince receives 'firm message' on Khashoggi probe at G20 summit

Macron then tells MBS: "You never listen to me", to which the prince responds "I will listen, of course".

The Crown Prince told Modi he would soon be finalizing an initial investment in India's National Investment and Infrastructure Fund, a quasi-sovereign wealth fund, to help accelerate the building of ports, highways and other projects.

Bolton's reluctance to hear the recording mirrored President Donald Trump's position that there is no need for him to listen.

The damage to the country's image and reputation will haunt its political elite for years, especially now that the Central Intelligence Agency has blamed Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for having authorized the operation.

The French president appeared smiling but stern towards the Saudi crown prince on the sidelines of the leaders' summit in Argentina, but internet lip readers are trying to decipher every word.

The Prime Minister's stony-faced meeting with Mohammed bin Salman was in stark contrast to the friendly "high five" he shared with Vladimir Putin.

As G-20 summit opens, contentious issues loom on sidelines
As the G20 Summit in Buenos Aires approaches, there is widespread speculation on whether or not U.S. A joint declaration is expected to be published at the end of the summit on Saturday.

However, French President Emmanuel Macron took a cooler, more confrontational stance when he came face-to-face with the Saudi crown prince.

French President Emmanuel Macron stepped up pressure on Salman over Khashoggi's killing by telling him global experts need to be involved in the murder investigation. Saudi Arabia has promised to get to the bottom of what happened but the West has accused Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, known as MBS, of ordering the killing.

Trump cancelled his G20 meeting with Putin on Twitter Thursday, amid new revelations from Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen about the president's involvement in Russian business dealings during his campaign.

One of the leaders Mr Putin was scheduled to have more formal bi-lateral talks with was German Chancellor Angela Merkel. However, it is being reported that Ms Merkel still plans to have her one-on-one with Mr Putin, with the pair set to meet on Saturday morning.

Mr Trump's key agenda item though, will be Saturday's dinner with Chinese President Xi Jinping - a head to head that world markets will also be watching closely.

However, this was a ceremonial signing.
