Starting with saying, "the world is a very risky place", U.S. President Donald Trump released an official statement this week on why the White House is standing with Saudi Arabia after veteran Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was brutally murdered at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.
The crown prince and his father, King Salman, said they did not commit "this atrocity", Trump said.
Saudi Arabia called the claim false and insisted that the crown prince knew nothing about plans for the killing.
"Maybe he did and maybe he didn't!"
Earlier this week, Karen Attiah, Khashoggi's editor at the U.S. newspaper, said MBS should not be welcomed at the G20 summit.
He says: "If they have ... they did not share it with us".
The prince, who arrived in Abu Dhabi late on Thursday, is also due to visit other Mideast countries, where he will be warmly received by Arab leaders who have stood firmly by his side amid global outrage over Khashoggi's horrific slaying.

Recipients include doctor and Republican Party donor Miriam Adelson, wife of Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. Some questioned Trump's decision to recognize Miriam Adelson so soon after the November 6 election.
Ibrahim Kalin was reported to have said: "There could be a meeting".
"I hate the crime".
"The companies have agreed to halt deliveries for now, but the situation may change if Saudi Arabia begins to demand damages for delayed deliveries", the source said. Maybe the world should be held accountable because the world is a vicious place.
"His Royal Highness the Crown Prince has nothing to do with this issue", Al-Jubeir said. Saudi Arabia has been a longtime strategic partner.
Khashoggi, a USA resident, was tortured and killed October 2 soon after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Saudi Arabia has said that it has placed 21 people in custody over the murder, and five could face the death penalty.
While Tunisia's presidency said on Friday he was welcome, activists have called for protests in front of the presidential palace in Carthage during Prince Mohammed's trip on Tuesday and are trying to mount a legal challenge to stop the visit.
"We want low oil prices and Saudi Arabia's really done a good job".
World leaders in Canada, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and elsewhere have condemned the murder as a gross offense against freedom of expression, although U.S. President Donald Trump has hesitated to come down too strongly against the Saudis.
