Russian President, Vladimir Putin and Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, will discuss the killing of Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, when the two leaders meet at the G20 summit in Argentina, the Kremlin stated on Wednesday ahead of the summit .
The two men will also discuss oil markets and the conflict in Syria.
A Kremlin aide, Yuri Ushakov, stated this at a briefing with reporters about the summit, which starts at the end of this month.
The Crown Prince landed in Buenos Aires on Wednesday, ahead of the summit of G20 countries.
Argentine state television stated that the visit was fraught with controversy over the killing of Khashoggi.
Human Rights Watch asked Argentina on Monday to use a war crimes clause in its constitution to investigate any involvement by the crown prince in possible crimes against humanity in Yemen and Khashoggi’s murder.
A representative of the federal prosecutor’s office that has been assigned the case told Reuters by telephone on Wednesday that the prosecutor was still reviewing the request.
He said that no decision had yet been made on whether to investigate it.
Prince Mohammed arrived in Buenos Aires from Tunisia, where he was met by protesters who denounced him as a murderer for the killing of Khashoggi.
He was greeted by Argentine foreign minister Jorge Faurie.
Western nations are also calling for an end to the Saudi-led military campaign in neighboring Yemen, which was launched by Prince Mohammed, as a humanitarian crisis there worsens.
The G20 leaders summit begins on Friday.
