Algerian president cancels bin Salman meeting over cold

Algerian president cancels bin Salman meeting over cold”

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey's insistence on finding the truth behind the recent killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi was not aimed at damaging the Saudi royal family.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will arrive in Algiers on Sunday, Algerian state media said, for a visit that has been roundly criticised due to the killing of a dissident journalist. Before attending the G20 summit, he visited the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt and Tunisia.

A Central Intelligence Agency assessment released in November appeared to implicate bin Salman in Khashoggi's murder. After offering numerous contradictory explanations, Riyadh later said Khashoggi had been killed and his body dismembered when negotiations to persuade him to return to Saudi Arabia failed.

The Saudi crown prince's visit to Algeria has drawn criticism from political and academic circles in the North African country.

Abderrazak Makri, head of the Islamist Movement of Society for Peace, told reporters the Crown Prince's visit "does not serve Algeria's image nor its reputation".

Secretary General of the leftist Workers' Party Louisa Hanoun called Prince Mohammed's visit a "provocation".

It said MbS was "responsible for the death of a large number of children and civilians in Yemen" as well as that of Khashoggi.

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.

"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.

Algiers also has strong ties with Qatar, with which Saudi Arabia and three other Arab states severed trade and transport ties in June 2017, accusing it of supporting terrorism and Iran.
