Saudi crown prince visits Algiers without meeting president

Coming from Mauritania, bin Salman arrived in Algeria on Sunday as part of a foreign tour amid criticism by several political figures and parties, who decried the timing of the visit as "inappropriate".

Saudi Arabia's prosecution has charged 11 people with involvement in the journalist's death, while Donald Trump's administration imposed penalties on 17 individuals last month over their alleged roles in the killing of Khashoggi.

Middle East Eye previously reported that Khashoggi was dragged from the consul-general's office in the consulate onto the table of his study next door where it took seven minutes for him to be killed.

Algerian Energy Minister Mustapha Guitouni said the prince "is welcome in his second country".

Louisa Hanoune, head of the opposition Workers' Party, described his visit as a "provocation".

Algerian-Saudi investments and trade relations, especially in the oil and petrochemical sectors, will be discussed during the two-day visit, APS said.

"He is responsible for the death of a large number of children and civilians in Yemen, the jailing of many Saudi citizens who did not commit a crime, and lastly, the crime against Jamal Khashoggi", he said.

"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 Journal reported.

At the start of the meeting, Dr. Al-Awwad stressed the importance of Saudi-Algerian relations, which are based on firm foundations and permanent friendship.

Speaking to reporters at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, Erdogan said that solving the Khashoggi killing would also be in the interest of the Saudi monarchy.
