In the tough international ambience, powerful Saudi crown Prince confronts the cold shoulder in foreign as he fights to the doubtful involvement and lingering ignominy of the assassination of Saudi journalist Khashoggi.
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has been in an Arab visit before he presents in the summit of G20 in Argentina where he confronts the international leaders who have strongly criticised the murder of Jamal Khashoggi in last month in the Arabian consulate in Istanbul. The De Facto ruler of the country has swept aside the international pressure, aiming to utilize the overseas visits – pursued by a whirlwind domestic tour – to regain his stained reputation and boosted relationship with the allies.
The senior fellow at the Royal United Services Institute in London and the Atlantic Council H.A, Hellyer said, “ The question is who among global leaders will agree to stand with him publicly. I suspect his appearances will be carefully staged to avoid embarrassment”.
The professor of Canada university in Waterloo, Bessma Momani claimed that Prince meets the formidable prospect of being treated like an “outcast” by some international leaders at the two-day long G-20 summit.
Momani said, “Group photos may be unavoidable, but liberal democratic leaders from countries such as Germany and Canada will not want to be seen shaking his hand”.
Former Spanish King Juan Carlos confronted fierce domestic condemnation over his handshake with the Saudi Crown prince in Abu Dhabi in his first stop in a regional visit which also enlisted close allies including Egypt, Bahrain and Tunisia.
