Emmanuel Macron Complains to Saudi Crown Prince: 'You Never Listen to Me'

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

Mr Macron says: "You never listen to me", to which the Crown Prince replies: "I will listen, of course".

The Argentine judiciary has initiated steps toward a formal investigation of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's possible responsibility for war crimes in Yemen and alleged torture of Saudi citizens.

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, back, stands as President Donald Trump passes by while leaders gather for the for the family photo of the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Friday, Nov. 30, 2018.

French President Emmanuel Macron told Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Europeans will insist on global experts being part of the investigations into a Saudi journalist's murder, an Elysee official said on Friday.

The prime minister had told reporters on the flight to Buenos Aires that she would speak to the crown prince about Mr Khashoggi's death and the situation in Yemen.

Saudi-owned broadcaster Al Arabiya posted video on Twitter showing a cordial handshake between bin Salman and Chinese President Xi Jinping as the two held a bilateral meeting.

An official from Macron's office said the meeting with bin Salman was necessary, as European nations wished to send a united message about the need for honesty in the investigation and were not going to sidestep an opportunity to reinforce that message during the G20 summit.

Mrs May is said to have told the Crown Prince to take action to prevent future incidents like the murder of Mr Khashoggi from happening. But with the agency not publicly stating so, Trump has attempted to deflect blame away from the crown prince.

At the end, Mr Macron is heard threateningly telling MBS: "I am a man of my word".

Mattis and Pompeo urged senators to support the USA involvement in the war in Yemen, including assistance to Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia claims that the prince had no prior knowledge of the murder.

"They exchanged pleasantries at the leaders' session as he did with almost every leader in attendance", the White House official said on Friday.

During the course of the day, President Trump "exchanged pleasantries" with Salman, telling reporters that while they didn't talk about hot-button issues concerning the USA and Saudi Arabia, it was possible the pair would do so as the summit rolled on.
