Saudi crown prince greeted by hundreds of protesters during Tunisia visit

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman

Media host and writer Emad Eddin Adib said that President Sisi received the Crown Prince of KSA upon arrival at Cairo International Airport, to show support for KSA amid the storm of controversy over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the consulate of KSA in Istanbul.

In an exclusive interview with Al Arabiya, Essebsi explained that the founding king advised the late Tunisian President Habib Bourguiba to adopt the politics of stages, which is the policy now pursued by Tunisia at present.

The Saudi crown prince has also held talks in the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt on his first foreign tour since the Khashoggi affair erupted.

The crown prince told Tunisian state television that Saudi Arabia has long had good relations with Tunisia, adding, "I can not come to North Africa without visiting Tunisia.Tunisia's president is like my father".

Authorities in Argentina are considering a possible war crimes investigation into Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ahead of his appearance in Buenos Aires for the global G20 Summit.

National security adviser John Bolton also said that the Group of 20 summit "is full to overflowing at this point", referring to meetings with the leaders of Germany, Japan, Argentina, India and South Korea.

In an apparent attempt to avoid embarrassing the prince, the presidency only invited photographers to cover his visit.

Protesters raised a large poster which depicted the Tunisian president pouring water on the bloodied hands of the Saudi crown prince - suggesting Tunisian complicity in washing away guilt.

The Tunisian journalists' union sent a letter to the president calling it an "attack on the principles" of the 2011 revolution that brought democracy and freedom of expression to Tunisia.

Has Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's visit to Egypt achieved its objective?

Saudi Arabia's plans to build a nuclear power plant will speed up the Kingdom's economic development as it would diversify its over-reliance on crude oil, a Saudi energy expert told Sputnik in an interview on Tuesday.

Tunisia was a strong Saudi ally under Ben Ali but ties have since been strained at times.

Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, went missing after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Even if the request is not accepted, it will cause further embarrassment for the crown prince when he arrives in the city for the summit.
