MBS and Putin could be seen smiling broadly as they spoke together:Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman speaks with Russia's President Vladimir Putin during the opening of the G20 leaders summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina November 30, 2018.
USA intelligence, which has reportedly analysed an audio recording from inside the Saudi Arabian consulate, has concluded that MBS was behind the murder of Mr Khashoggi, an allegation which Saudi Arabia still denies.
Putin and bin Salman are among the two most controversial figures at the summit in Buenos Aires, having both come under global criticism recently, and they seemed to bond over the shared experience.
During the course of the day, President Trump "exchanged pleasantries" with Salman, telling reporters that while they didn't talk about hot-button issues concerning the USA and Saudi Arabia, it was possible the pair would do so as the summit rolled on.
British Prime Minister Theresa May also said she "intends" to speak with the crown prince.

American intelligence officials believe the order for his death came directly from the crown prince, yet U.S. President Donald Trump has suggested he does not believe their assessment.
"No, I will listen of course", he answered.
However, Russia has suggested United States domestic politics may have been the real reason behind the cancellation.
One of the leaders Mr Putin was scheduled to have more formal bi-lateral talks with was German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The German Chancellor's summit schedule was disrupted after a technical fault meant she had to change planes en route, delaying her arrival. "We might [later], but we had none", President Trump told the press pool. Both the leaders are in Buenos Aires to attend the Group of 20 (G-20) summit which kicks off today (Friday).
However, this was a ceremonial signing.
