French President Emmanuel Macron told Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Europeans will insist on worldwide experts being part of the investigations into the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, an Elysee official told Reuters on November 30.

The G20 summit in Argentina is the first major worldwide event Prince Mohammed has attended since the murder of the Washington Post columnist, a critic of the crown prince, in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October.

The Crown Prince, Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler, has denied any involvement in the murder, but USA intelligence officials believe he directed the operation.

Macron was heard in a video from the summit telling the crown prince "I told you".

The Crown Prince told Modi he would soon be finalizing an initial investment in India's National Investment and Infrastructure Fund, a quasi-sovereign wealth fund, to help accelerate the building of ports, highways and other projects.

Putin and bin Salman are among the two most controversial figures at the summit in Buenos Aires, having both come under worldwide criticism recently, and they seemed to bond over the shared experience. REUTERS/Sergio MoraesHuman Rights Watch executive director Kenneth Roth wrote that the two "seem greatly relieved to find someone who won't mention their conduct overseas".

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.

Trump cancelled his G20 meeting with Putin on Twitter Thursday, amid new revelations from Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen about the president's involvement in Russian business dealings during his campaign.

However, Russia has suggested United States domestic politics may have been the real reason behind the cancellation.

Ms Merkel said she would address the Russia/Ukraine stand-off during their discussions, a crisis she has blamed "entirely" on Russia.

With such a keen focus on the US President's trade policies, Mr Trump started the summit with what he certainly considers a win.
