Crown Prince holds talks with Tunisian President

Crown Prince holds talks with Tunisian President

President Trump will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin but not with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at the G20 summit this week, the White House said Tuesday.

After visiting Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt, the crown prince went to Tunisia, where protesters denounced him for his alleged involvement in the killing of a Saudi journalist.

In Cairo, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi praised the "unshakable strategic alliance between Egypt and Saudi Arabia" during the visit, the state daily Al-Ahram reported Tuesday.

Saudi authorities have blamed the killing on lower-ranking officials who they say exceeded their authority.

Konaysi added in a statement that the Egyptian State and people are supporting Saudi Arabia in the face of conspiracies that are plotted by the powers of evil seeking to undermine the Saudi security and stability.

"It was premeditated murder", he told the German newspaper, rather than a last resort after they failed to convince him to return to Saudi Arabia.

Citing Argentina's robust human rights law, Human Right Watch (HRW) filed a petition on Monday asking a federal prosecutor to bring charges against the crown prince, a close ally of President Donald Trump, for "violations of worldwide law committed during the armed conflict in Yemen" including the killings of more than 15,000 civilians and blockades which have pushed 14 million people to the brink of starvation.

Speaking of the prospect of U.S. -Saudi leaders' meeting, Sanders said she would not rule out any interaction, adding that Trump will also meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The prince is expected to fly on to a Group of 20 summit in Argentina at the end of his Tunisia visit. "We don't want the money of a regime whose hands are stained with blood". It read: "No to the pollution of the Tunisian revolution".

In March 2018, Prince Salman visited Cairo for the first time since his appointment as Crown Prince.

Charges would allegedly revolve around Saudi Arabia's prosecution of the war in Yemen and the government's treatment of individual Saudi citizens, prominently including Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi, murdered by Saudi agents at the consulate in Istanbul last month.

"A decision by Argentine officials to move toward investigation would be a strong signal that even powerful officials like Mohammed bin Salman are not beyond the reach of the law".

The focus of the Human Rights Watch complaint is the Saudi-led war in Yemen.
