French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday reportedly insisted that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman include international experts as part of an ongoing investigation into the death of U.S.-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
A French official said the two leaders discussed Khashoggis murder during a five-minute exchange that took place on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Argentina, where they also talked about the need to find a solution to the situation in Yemen, Reuters reported.
The Saudi Gazette newspaper shared a clip of the brief exchange. In one part of the clip, the crown prince can be heard telling Macron dont worry, to which the French leader responds: I am worried, according to Reuters.
It was not clear what topic the two were discussing at that moment.
Macron also said, You never listen to me, to which the prince the replied, I will listen, of course, Reuters reported.
Macron is later heard saying: I am a man of my word.
The exchange reportedly marked the first time Macron has spoken to the crown prince since Khashoggi was killed after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2.
Khashoggi had been an outspoken critic of Saudi leadership as an opinion writer for The Washington Post.
Riyadh has made efforts to distance the crown prince from Khashoggi's death in the wake of news reports that the CIA concluded that the journalist was murdered following orders from the Saudi leader.
While many world leaders have condemned the crown prince over Khashoggis murder, Trump has abeen reluctant to do the same, saying the Saudi leader has denied any involvement.
French president to Saudi crown prince: ‘You never listen to me’
Saudi crown prince: ‘What?’........................
“I am going to tell my mom/wife!”
The Saudis like Hillary eliminates enemies.
My wife says I never listen to her, at least I think that’s what she says.
The muslim brotherhood guy getting whacked by his own people is not worth the bother.
Sorry, Macron, but no one listens to you very much..... Not even your mama/wife.
I just turn my hearing aid off........................
“Wah!!!...Mommy, the Prince won’t play with me!!!”
And you forgot my birthday, and you were mean to my mother.
I guess the new crown prince is not as anti-Semitic as Macroon and the rest of the French as they used to be, thus the deaf ear.
It did not say that the CIA concluded anything. There was a news report that suggested that. Leaking still going on at CIA?
The proper response should have been - “If you think I don’t listen, why do you keep talking?”
Why would anyone listen to a man/boy who married a woman old enough to be his mother?
Why would anyone listen to the CIA?
They have been spectacularly wrong about so much.
My wife just stopped and said, “You weren’t even listening, were you?”
I thought...”Gee, that’s a pretty weird way to start a conversation.”
Yes and that was BO? (Before Obama)
After Obama it is much much worse.
Of course I listen and hear what you are saying. But what you are saying has no value so I ignore it.
Here's an idea,
MacronMoron -- piss off the ruler of the largest oil producer in the world, when the EU buys 35% of its oil from the OPEC states most of whiich are on the Gulf.
