Saudi friend of Khashoggi sues Israeli surveillance company

The Saudi crown prince's tour is his first since Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, was killed early October inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

'Our relationship with Saudi Arabia is important to this country, but that does not prevent us from putting forward robust views on these matters of grave concern'.

With pomp reserved for heads of state, Algerian Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia greeted bin Salman on the tarmac late Sunday.

A Central Intelligence Agency assessment released in November appeared to implicate bin Salman in Khashoggi's murder.

Trudeau said he also brought up the need for better answers on the killing of journalist Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the ongoing imprisonment of Raif Badawi, as well as the need for an immediate ceasefire and humanitarian aid in Yemen. Three agreements and memoranda of understanding were signed on the sidelines of the visit of the Crown Prince.

"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.

The Saudi crown prince is due to meet top Algerian officials to discuss bilateral relations and developments in the oil market as well as a couple of worldwide issues, according to a statement from the Algerian Presidency Office.

This balance that many worldwide politicians are choosing to follow, of continued conversation with the Saudi crown prince whilst confronting him head on about the Khashoggi case, is the most appropriate in these hard circumstances. The announcement was made in the presence of the Crown Prince and the Mauritanian president.

The trip marked the highest-profile overseas junket for the crown prince since Khashoggi's murder. May said, "and the importance of insuring that those who were involved are held to account".

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

Urging Saudi authorities to cooperate with their Turkish counterparts, Mr. Conte underlined guarantees he said he had received that the investigation would help solve - rather than cover up - the case.
