Saudi crown prince visits Algiers without meeting president

  • Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman stands for a G20 family

Three agreements and memoranda of understanding were signed on the sidelines of the visit of the Crown Prince. She and the Crown Prince sat stony-faced as they met in Buenos Aries on Saturday.

Algerian Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia greeted the prince on the tarmac late Sunday and held talks with him on Monday in Bouteflika's absence.

All eyes have been on the Saudi crown prince during the trip, which marks his first major overseas appearance since the killing of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October.

To make matters worse, the New York-based Human Rights Watch had gotten an Argentine judge to investigate the de facto ruler of the oil-rich country over his alleged involvement in the Khashoggi murder - a hypothesis backed by a Central Intelligence Agency report - and what the group called "apparent war crimes" in Yemen.

"For me, it is obvious that this is an issue that concerns not just Canada but a number of our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies", Trudeau said Saturday.

"What I said to the crown prince [Friday] was the importance of a full, credible, transparent investigation that identifies those who were involved", Ms. In August, when Abdulaziz expressed his believe that their conversation may have been hacked by Saudi authorities, Khashoggi wrote, "God help us".

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.

'Leaders should not just offer warm words against human rights atrocities, but back their words up with action.

"Rather than be robust as promised, we learn that the Prime Minister told the dictator 'please don't use the weapons we are selling you in the war you're waging" and asked him nicely to investigate the murder he allegedly ordered.

Like a previous stop in Tunis, the crown prince's visit has drawn criticism from political and academic circles in Algeria over the Saudi-led war in Yemen and Washington Post columnist Khashoggi's grisly murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. "But they should be nevertheless ashamed of themselves for taking a picture with this guy regardless of his record".
