Meeting in Buenos Aires, host of the Group of 20 summit of industrialised nations on Friday (Nov 30), Xi said China has always attached great importance to its relations with Saudi Arabia, China's official Xinhua news agency reported. The CIA continues to accuse the crown Prince to order the murder.

The revelation was made in over 400 WhatsApp messages Khashoggi had sent to a Canada-based activist and fellow Saudi exile Omar Abdulaziz in the year prior to his killing.

Now, MBS has one last stop in Jordan before he returns home, amid the murmurs over the handling of Khashoggi killing though.

Pedro Sanchez said Saudi Arabia had to clarify what happened in connection with the death of Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. Mr. Qahtani supervised the 15-man team that killed Mr. Khashoggi and, during the same period, was also in direct communication with the team's leader in Istanbul, the assessment says.

The US Treasury Department has sanctioned 17 individuals it said were involved in Khashoggi's death, including Qahtani, Mutreb and the Saudi consul general in Turkey, Mohammad al-Otaibi.

"The world is certain that he ordered a bad crime against the journalist Jamal Khashoggi", they wrote.

Both French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May said they raised the Khashoggi case during private meetings with the crown prince, with Macron overheard on an open microphone telling him, "You never listen to me".

Putin said in October he lacked information about the matter and said Russian Federation would not tear up its relations with Saudi Arabia because of it.

Days before the start of the summit, Human Rights Watch called on Argentina to use a war crimes clause in its constitution to investigate any involvement by the crown prince in possible crimes against humanity in Yemen, where a Saudi-led military campaign is underway, and Khashoggi's murder.

"He is like a beast "pac man" the more victims he eats, the more he wants", Khashoggi said in the messages to Abdulaziz.

Mrs May said the working group between the USA and United Kingdom examining the future trade arrangements has been "making good progress".

"[Jamal] believed that MBS is the issue, is the problem and he said this kid should be stopped", Abdulaziz said in an interview with CNN.

The presence of the targeted spyware on Mr Abdulaziz's phone means Saudi officials may have been able to read Khashoggi's messages.
