Freeland said Canada is now reviewing its sale of light armored vehicles to Saudi Arabia, and as that review is ongoing, no new arms permits are being issued. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Chris Murphy, D-Conn., would end US involvement and military assistance to the war where more 85,000 children have died because of a war-induced famine in the country and millions of people on the brink of starvation, which UNICEF declared the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.

The US senate has delivered a significant rebuke to the Trump administration by defying the advice of its top officials and advancing a measure that would cut American military support for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.

After releasing the results of its initial investigation, the Saudi Public Prosecution announced that 18 Saudis were arrested for their alleged connections with the killing. Growing interest in showing the Saudis that, Khashoggi or no, the United States still supports them, has meant that Yemen is once again a low priority.

What did Mike Pompeo say?

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said on Thursday the trilateral meeting with Prime Minister Modi will be held towards the end of the Trump-Abe talks.

A vote, he said, would "encourage the Houthis" and their Iranian allies.

Freeland said Canada is reviewing its arm sales to Saudi Arabia in light of the Khashoggi case and the Saudi-backed war in Yemen.

"Regarding the crown prince, who is attending this summit, Saudi Arabia is a permanent member of the G20".

Argentine President Mauricio Macri said on Thursday that accusations against Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of war crimes and torture may be discussed during the G20 summit, which starts on Friday. "Finally there is some questioning inside the Kingdom, 'Do we really want to hang on to him for the next 50 years'".

A number came out saying the arguments they had heard had not been convincing.

The Yemen war has killed more than 15,000 people and created the world's most urgent humanitarian emergency. The CIA has the latest intelligence assessment of Khashoggi's murder.

The prince, who stopped in several Arab countries along the way, arrived in Buenos Aires early Wednesday and was taken to the Saudi Embassy, which is being guarded by dozens of police officers.

Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, said it was a "cover-up" not to have the Central Intelligence Agency director take part.

"We have a problem here".

One Republican emerged from the briefing calling for new sanctions on Saudi Arabia over Mr Khashoggi's murder. "We also have a crown prince that's out of control", he said.
