Trudeau avoids confrontation with Saudi crown prince, Putin during G20 summit

Jamal Khashoggi discussed sending Omar Abdulaziz funding for a project the two called

The US intelligence community also has intercepts of communications before Khashoggi was killed that show Mohammed had ordered an operation to lure him back to Saudi Arabia.

He was met with protests in Buenos Aires and the summit is expected to create tensions between the prince and western leaders.

Speaking during her flight to Buenos Aires, May said she "intends" to speak with Mohammed bin Salman.

The Crown Prince also told associates in August previous year that if he failed to persuade Khashoggi to return to Saudi Arabia, "we could possibly lure him outside Saudi Arabia and make arrangements" - a communication the Central Intelligence Agency said "seems to foreshadow the Saudi operation launched against Khashoggi".

Bin Salman is under intense scrutiny after a team of 15 Saudis murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi in his country's consulate in Istanbul on 2 October. From left in the front row are Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Brazil President Michel Temer.

Saudi Arabia has said the prince had no prior knowledge of the killing.

Trudeau stressed that he continues to believe "frank and direct" conversations with leaders matter, adding they are what Canadians expect him to do and what the world has come to expect of Canada. The global community has strongly condemned the murder and urged Riyadh to carry out a transparent investigation.

President Donald Trump, who also has been briefed on the CIA's findings, has been equivocal in assigning blame to the crown prince, who works closely with the president's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner on Middle East issues.

The lawsuit says Abdulaziz received and clicked on a link sent to his phone in June 2018 that he argues exposed his mobile communications to Saudi authorities. The CIA has told lawmakers that it has medium to high confidence that Prince Mohammad ordered the killing.

Mr. Modi and Prince Mohammed discussed scaling up investments in Indias tech, farm and energy sectors, according to an Indian official and the Saudi news agency (SPA).

In the end, they were not.

Saudi Arabia has announced the detention of 18 nationals and vowed to probe the killing of Khashoggi, a royal confidant turned critic who was killed and dismembered when he visited the kingdom's Istanbul consulate to handle paperwork for his planned wedding.
