ANKARA — Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan could meet with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Argentina next week amid tensions over the murder of kingdom critic Jamal Khashoggi.
Such a meeting would be the first face-to-face encounter between Erdogan and the crown prince since the killing that has tainted the image of both the kingdom and its de facto ruler.
“There could be” a meeting, Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said. “We’re looking at the programme,” Kalin said, according to state news agency Anadolu.
