Presence of Saudi crown prince shakes up G20 for Canadian government

Argentina judge acts on complaint against Saudi prince

Argentina judge acts on complaint against Saudi prince

"Canada continues to call for a credible and independent investigation", the statement said, so those responsible can face justice.

Voting on the Yemen measure was seen by some lawmakers as a way to censure the crown prince, who has led the campaign in Yemen.

Defying President Donald Trump, senators sent a strong signal that they want to punish Saudi Arabia for its role in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. "We understand that Saudi Arabia is an ally, of sorts, and a semi-important country, and we've watched innocent people be killed, we've watched people dying of diseases they shouldn't be dying of..."

Questions related to the extent of the USA role and what the United States intelligence knows about the Jamal Khashoggi murder were on lawmakers' minds ahead of the briefing.

"If that doesn't constitute hostilities, I don't know what does", he said, becoming animated during his floor speech.

Newsweek and other news organizations are reporting that at least five of the Republican senators who voted against ending support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen received donations from Saudi lobbyists. He added, "We also have a crown prince that's out of control".

President Donald Trump has dismissed a reported Central Intelligence Agency assessment that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was to blame for his killing in Istanbul in October. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said before the vote.




"This case is not closed as far as Canada is concerned", Freeland said. Britain is a major arms supplier to Saudi Arabia and opposition politicians and human rights groups have called on the government to cease such sales due to the high civilian death toll in air raids by the coalition in Yemen.

Asked whether Canada believes the Crown Prince was involved in Mr. Khashoggi's death, Ms. Freeland did not directly answer the question but implied the Canadian government lacks sufficient evidence to say that.

PMO sources said the meeting signifies the importance that both leaders attach to the issue of climate change.

"Abandoning Yemen would do enormous damage to United States national security interests and those of our Middle Eastern allies and partners".

All of the letters cite recent reports that Washington lobbyists have "raked in $76.9 million", over the past decade to advocate for the Saudis "on everything from nuclear power to fending off legislation that would leave the kingdom liable in lawsuits filed by family members of victims in the September 11 terrorist attacks".

Though Pompeo and Mattis both called for an immediate Yemen cease-fire by all parties to the conflict on October 30, and the State Department reiterated that call last week, they argued in remarks prepared for today's briefing that the United States should in essence help Saudi Arabia keep the military pressure on Yemen's Houthi rebels ahead of efforts to bring the parties to the table at UN talks next month.
