Turkey says Saudi prince has asked to meet Erdogan at G20

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has asked for a meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and that there was now no reason not to meet him, said Turkey's foreign minister.

Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi told Al Arabiya News Channel in the presence of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman that the relations between the two countries are historical.

On a regional visit, the Saudi crown prince had visited to the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, with a stop in Tunisia scheduled after Cairo.

US media reported earlier that the briefing would also focus on the Saudi role in the death of Khashoggi, and whether to impose further sanctions on the kingdom.

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.

This was evident from the welcome from Egyptian MPs and some of those who came out to receive the crown prince on the streets of Cairo, either spontaneously or by prior arrangement, which emphasized that Egypt stands by the Saudi Arabian people and leadership.

Khashan said he thought the crown prince was likely to survive the political storm that followed the killing of Khashoggi and that the issue was gradually losing steam in the Arab media.

Among their targets was Nariman House - the Jewish community center operated by the Chabad movement in Mumbai . But US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said those who planned the attack had not been convicted.

Asked about the prince's visit, Tunisian government minister Selma Elloumi said he is "welcome" in Tunisia and stressed "historical and fraternal" relations between the countries.

He stressed that the strategic partnership between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and Egypt aims to spread love and peace, with a unified vision that serves the interests of the two countries, both official and public.

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

Later this week, world leaders, including the Saudi crown prince, are expected to convene at the worldwide summit.

His visit will be the first by a Saudi royal to Tunisia since the 2011 revolution deposed longtime ruler Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali, who fled to Saudi Arabia.

They blamed him for the brutal killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi intelligence agents at Riyadh's 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".
