Hundreds of Tunisians protest at visit of Saudi prince

  • Saudi Arabia's Deputy Crown Prince and Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman takes his seat to meet with U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis and his delegation on 19 April 2017 in Riyadh Saudi Arabia

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa opened a new oil pipeline between the two countries on Monday, the Saudi Press agency said.

Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in an interview published on Tuesday that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had asked for a meeting with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and that there was now no reason not to meet him.

The Crown Prince began his regional tour in the UAE on Thursday, meeting with Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.

"It's inconsistent with the intelligence I've seen", Lee said.

He added: "There will be a lot happening" on Saudi Arabia.

The crown prince's plan to attend the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires "tells me that he feels that he's ridden out the storm, or that in order for him to ride out the storm this is exactly what he needs to do".

After several weeks of shifting explanations, Riyadh eventually admitted the dissident writer was killed at the hands of a hit team sent from the kingdom, but the Saudis maintain that Prince Mohammed had no knowledge of the rogue operation.

Trump hints at not imposing new round of tariffs on China
Some analysts and officials have raised the possibility that the two presidents could agree to a ceasefire of sorts at the G-20. Maybe President Trump had found Navarro's ravings useful at an earlier stage of his negotiating strategy, but not now.

"I never thought I'd see the day a White House would moonlight as a public relations firm for the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia", Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, wrote on Twitter after Trump's comments on Tuesday.

The US Central Intelligence Agency has concluded the crown prince was behind the killing.

In Graham's statement to Axios, however, the Senator seems to oppose Trump's statement standing behind Saudi Arabia, telling Swan about the relationship with the Crown Prince, "We can not have a normal strategic relationship with somebody this insane".

Hundreds of people gathered earlier on Tuesday on Habib Bourguiba avenue in the capital Tunis and chanted slogans calling for the overthrow of the crown prince. This is not an ally that deserves this kind of military intervention, especially because there's been no connection between the safety of the American people and our involvement in this war.

"Universal jurisdiction cases are an increasingly important part of global efforts to hold those responsible for atrocities accountable, provide justice to victims who have nowhere else to turn, deter future crimes, and help ensure that countries do not become safe havens for human rights abusers", the statement highlighted.

Moroccan media have speculated on the reason for the snub, with Morocco World News quoting a government source as saying King Mohammed VI had declined to meet with the Saudi leader, citing a "busy schedule".
