Saudi crown prince to head to Algeria amid outcry

Saudi crown prince to head to Algeria amid outcry

Launched in April 2016 by the crown prince, the Vision 2030 aims to diversify Saudi Arabia's economy beyond the energy sector.

Qatar's withdrawal from OPEC, announced on Monday, will likely be added to the agenda.

Saudi Arabia is set to expand its market share in China this year for the first time since 2012, with demand stirred up by new Chinese refiners pushing the kingdom back into contention with Russian Federation as top supplier to the world's largest oil buyer.

On Wednesday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo defended Washington's continued strong ties with Riyadh despite Khashoggi's murder, and denied reports linking the Saudi crown prince to the killing.

French President Emmanuel Macron was captured on video seemingly lecturing the crown prince, at one point being heard saying "I am anxious", "you never listen to me", and "I am a man of my word".

The visit would focus on "partnerships and investment projects", the Algerian presidency said before the prince arrived in Algiers late Sunday on a flight from Mauritania.

"The guilt is killing me", he said. Last month, the Central Intelligence Agency concluded with "high confidence" that the crown prince was directly responsible for ordering the killing.

His visit to Tunis was greeted by demonstrations against Khashoggi's murder and the war in Yemen.

But the Turkish leader, also attending the G-20, was visibly cooler towards the 33-year-old prince and on Saturday directly criticised him for the first time over the killing of Khashoggi, a royal confidant turned critic.

Mohamed Ould Sidi, president of the student association spearheading the anti-Crown Prince protests in Mauritania, told Mauritanian outlet Al-Araby al-Jadeed: "We Mauritanians will not stand by and let the murderer of Yemeni children pollute our soil". "The more victims he eats, the more he wants", says Khashoggi in one message sent in May, just after a group of Saudi activists had been rounded up. "I'm glad you're overseas and you are safe", Abdulaziz wrote to Khashoggi following the interception of their messages by Saudi in August. Unfortunately, Saudi Arabia does not support us.

"God help us", he wrote in August.
