Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has reportedly postponed a planned visit to Jordan after facing the cold shoulder in Algeria, where President Abdelaziz Bouteflika scrapped a meeting with him, citing flu.
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is seen behind a military band upon his arrival at Algiers International Airport, southeast of the capital Algiers on December 2, 2018.
Before the summit, the heir to the throne of the world's top oil exporter had visited the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt and Tunisia.
USA intelligence agencies have evidence that Crown Prince Mohammed and al-Qahtani had 11 exchanges that roughly coincided with the hit team's advance into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, where Khashoggi was murdered.
Earlier it was reported that the leader of the United States Donald trump said that he would not listen to the record, which recorded the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi the Saudi Arabia Consulate in Istanbul.
Saudi Arabia has said the prince had no prior knowledge of the killing.
In a nod to growing criticism at home on Saudi Arabia, Trump only exchanged "pleasantries" with the crown prince, according to the White House.
The crown prince had been expected to arrive in Amman on Monday.
Secretary of Defence Jim Mattis said the question of holding the killers responsible and the strategic importance of the US-Saudi relationship were separate issues. Last month, the Central Intelligence Agency concluded with "high confidence" that the crown prince was directly responsible for ordering the killing. The content of the messages between Prince Mohammed and Mr. Qahtani isn't known, the document says. "God help us", he wrote.
"The more victims he eats, the more he wants", Khashoggi was quoted as saying in one message sent in May, the CNN report added.
Omar Abdulaziz believes Saudi authorities intercepted private messages between him and Jamal Khashoggi. Abdulaziz began speaking out against the Saudi regime as a college student in Canada.
Last May, Abdulaziz said he met two Saudi government officials in Montreal, and recorded their conversations, sharing them with CNN.
Abdulaziz said that their, and the Saudi government's, greatest weapon was Twitter.
