Vladimir Putin And Saudi Crown Prince Pal Around At G20 Summit

The two leaders discussed investment in solar energy through the Soft Bank Vision Fund and through the Saudi companies which will build solar energy projects.

Putin is under fire, at least most recently, for the Russian seizure of Ukrainian ships and sailors. Operatives with ties to the Crown Prince have been arrested over the killing.

The conversation between Macron and MBS took place in Buenos Aires as world leaders arrived in the Argentinian capital for the G20 summit.

In a November 26 submission, Human Rights Watch asked the Argentine federal prosecutor to examine the crown prince's possible responsibility for torture of Saudi citizens in government custody - including Khashoggi who was murdered on October 2 - and violations of global humanitarian law in Yemen.

The prime minister told Mohammed bin Salman there needed to "be full transparency about exactly what had happened" and also full cooperation with Turkish authorities. So far, it's been a mixed bag.

The G20 summit in Buenos Aires will be the first major worldwide event Prince Mohammed has attended since Khashoggi's murder.

"We suggest renaming the street address of the Saudi Embassy into Jamal Khashoggi Way to be a daily reminder to Saudi officials" that such killings are "totally unacceptable and as an expression of Washington's unstinting support for freedom of the press", the petition states.

While Knickers is undoubtedly larger than your average steer - a neutered male - the video images are somewhat misleading. HOLY COW - you seen the size of this moo moo?! "Knickers" is a Holstein-Friesian steer, which is a dairy breed of cattle.

In the audio, it is possible to make out the prince saying "Don't worry", to which Macron responds "I am worried".

An official in Macron's office said the exchange captured on video and transcripts circulating on social media "show well the president's firm stance".

"You never listen to me", lamented Macron as the Saudi Prince laughed-off the confrontation.

While Turkey hasn't explicitly named MBS, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the murder was ordered at the highest level of Saudi leadership, though not by King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

The U.S. president is facing pressure from lawmakers on both sides at home to take a tougher stance against the prince, rather than defend him as a reformer and a facilitator of lower oil prices for the U.S. economy.

Mattis said the meeting included exhaustive discussions and that lawmakers expressed frustration with United States support to Saudi Arabia.
