The Crown Prince also told associates in August past year that if he failed to persuade Khashoggi to return to Saudi Arabia, "we could possibly lure him outside Saudi Arabia and make arrangements" - a communication the Central Intelligence Agency said "seems to foreshadow the Saudi operation launched against Khashoggi".

Here in Buenos Aires, where the G20 Summit is taking place and specifically in the hall allotted for the media that transmit the G20 Summit events live, the Crown Prince's image appeared on the screen and many cameramen hurried to take his pictures using their cameras while others took pictures using their mobiles.

The electronic messages were said to have been sent by Prince Mohammed to Saud al-Qahtani, who supervised the 15-man team that killed Khashoggi, the paper said.

Earlier, Prince Mohammed was sidelined during the official "family photo" of world leaders at Friday's gathering and was largely ignored.

"I have read every piece of intelligence that is in the possession of the United States government", Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in an interview with CNN on Saturday, "and when it is done, when you complete that analysis, there's no direct evidence linking him to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi".

"For me, it is obvious that this is an issue that concerns not just Canada but a number of our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies", Trudeau said Saturday. "It remains an important relationship, and we're aiming to keep that relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia".

Speaking to reporters at a press conference in Buenos Aires, Trudeau said he had a "frank" exchange with Saudi Arabia's de facto leader on the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, the imprisonment of blogger Raif Badawi and the recent diplomatic spat between Ottawa and Riyadh.

The Journal also reported on Friday that in August 2017, MBS had told associates if his efforts to persuade Khashoggi to return to Saudi Arabia were unsuccessful, "we could possibly lure him outside Saudi Arabia and make arrangements".

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and a vocal critic of Saudi leadership, was killed on October 2 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to obtain marriage documents for his upcoming wedding. "But his own officials have admitted that this was a planned operation".

Demonstrators from the Stop The War Coalition stage the protest against the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, war in Yemen and United Kingdom arms sales to Saudi Arabia outside the Saudi Arabian Embassy in London, Britain, October 25 2018. Trump issued a statement that included defence of the kingdom as a "great ally" and refusal to assign blame to the prince, saying "maybe he did and maybe he didn't" order the killing.

"We have evidence that Saudi journalist Khashoggi was killed in 7.5 minutes, we shared that evidence with all countries who demanded", he said.
