President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi received on Monday, Nov. 26 Bin Salman upon his arrival at Cairo International Airport.

In an exclusive interview with Al Arabiya, Essebsi explained that the founding king advised the late Tunisian President Habib Bourguiba to adopt the politics of stages, which is the policy now pursued by Tunisia at present.

Earlier this month, Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman launched several new strategic projects in the country, including one to build a nuclear research reactor.

The crown prince told Tunisian state television that Saudi Arabia has long had good relations with Tunisia, adding, "I can not come to North Africa without visiting Tunisia.Tunisia's president is like my father".

John Bolton said on Tuesday that U.S. President Donald Trump and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman are not expected to hold a formal bilateral meeting during the Group of 20 (G20) summit in Argentina.

A banner showing a doctored image of the prince holding a bone saw hung on the headquarters of the Tunisian journalists union.

The complaint also accuses the crown prince and Saudi government of torture of Saudi citizens.

Saudi Arabia has repeatedly said the prince had no knowledge of the killing, which Turkey says was carried out at the Saudi consulate by a squad of 15 Saudi agents which included a member of Prince Mohammed's security team.

"We do not reject the participation of Saudi Arabia in the summit, but we refuse that this country should be represented at the summit by a person accused of inciting the murder of our friend Khashoggi, and the accused would use his participation to wash his hands of Khashoggi's blood under your care", said the association.

Khashan said he thought the crown prince was likely to survive the political storm that followed the killing of Khashoggi and that the issue was gradually losing steam in the Arab media.

Last week Essebsi adviser Nourredine Ben Ticha said the truth about the killing of Khashoggi must be established but the incident should not be used to harm the kingdom's stability. Saudi Arabia also faces a hard situation in which it is necessary to call on true friends.

In contrast, Tunisia has since 2011 expanded cooperation with Qatar, with which Saudi Arabia and three other Arab states severed trade and transport ties in June 2017.

The tour comes weeks after the murder of Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul. The four accused Doha of supporting terrorism and Iran - charges Doha denies.
