Saudi Crown Prince sidelined in G20 family photo

What did Macron & MBS say to each other? Camera catches pally chat at G20

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.

The widely-shared video showed Salman replying: 'I will listen, of course.' It concluded with Macron saying: 'I am a man of my word'.

During the five-minute exchange, Salman is heard urging Macron not to worry, to which the French president promptly replied, "I am anxious".

Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has been sharply critical of Saudi Arabia over the incident, is also in attendance.

Despite the reassurances, Macron appears to reply "I am anxious", as the awkward encounter continued.

The Crown Prince, Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler, has denied any involvement in the murder, but U.S. intelligence officials believe he directed the operation.

Mr Trump is also reported to have had a short meeting with the Crown Prince.

It is thought the prince's other notable meeting in Argentina will be with Russia's President Putin.

Mr Trump's decision came as his former lawyer admitted to lying to Congress over a property deal in Russian Federation that Mr Trump was involved in, during the 2016 US Presidential election.

But a few minutes later, Vladimir Putin greeted the Saudi prince warmly, giving him an enthusiastic high five as they sat down together at the large ring-shaped table for the first group session.

However, a White House official said the United States president had so far only exchanged pleasantries with him.

MBS is expected to meet with just a few leaders at the summit in Buenos Aires, including Putin.

Ms Merkel said she would address the Russia/Ukraine stand-off during their discussions, a crisis she has blamed "entirely" on Russia.

Separately, the arrival of German Chancellor Angela Merkel was delayed after her official jet was hit by technical issues, forcing it to return to the country shortly after take-off.

"It only wasn't set up", the president told reporters Thursday. At June's Group of 7 meeting in Canada, Trump withdrew USA support for the document he had just agreed to, upset about the treatment by his host Justin Trudeau amid bilateral tensions over trade. The deal still needs to win congressional approval in Washington.
