In a five minutes exchange on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Argentina, Mr Macron conveyed “very firm” messages to the prince over the murder of Mr Khashoggi, an Elysee official said.

According to the official, Mr Macron said that there was also the need to find a political solution for the situation in Yemen, the official added.
