The US helped broker a meeting between the leaders of Israel and Saudi Arabia, according to two officials briefed on the matter. The two sources — one Israeli and one European — said the meeting was a reward for the audacious assassination in August of an Al Qaeda target in Iran. The secret meeting, they said, was meant to pave the way for Saudi Arabia to formally recognize Israel. However, it fell short of its aims and Saudi Arabia publicly denied that a meeting took place. US officials organized a meeting between Israeli prime minister and the crown prince of Saudi Arabia as payback for assassinating a leading member of Al Qaeda, intelligence sources told Insider.

"We are committed to leading the world in shaping a strong, sustainable, balanced and inclusive post-COVID-19 era," G-20 leaders declared in a twelve page document released on Sunday evening. "Every single leader was supportive of the G-20 initiatives to ensure that we provide enough resources to ensure that the vaccine and therapeutics are available to everyone." Leaders warned the recovery is far from guaranteed, despite economic activity beginning to pick up in some countries. The G-20 group also made progress on debt suspension, with leaders committing to implementing the Debt Service Suspension Initiative (DSSI) and even extending it through June 2021. The declaration also said all G-20 members continue to support efforts and utilize all available approaches aimed at "advancing environmental stewardship for future generations."

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Russia on Friday stopped a U.N. Security Council committee from blacklisting a Libyan militia group and its leader for human rights abuses because it said it wanted to see more evidence first that they had killed civilians. The United States and Germany proposed that the council’s 15-member Libya sanctions committee impose an asset freeze and travel ban on the al-Kaniyat militia and its leader Mohammed al-Kani. Such a move has to be agreed by consensus, but Russia said it could not approve. Libya descended into chaos after the NATO-backed overthrow of leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. In addition, UNSMIL verified numerous summary executions at Tarhouna Prison conducted by the al-Kaniyat militia on September 13, 2019,” the proposal read.

A Saudi man adjusts his head cover ahead of a meeting of Finance ministers and central bank governors of the G20 nations in the Saudi capital Riyadh on November 18, 2020. - Saudi Arabia hosts the G20 summit Saturday in a first for an Arab nation, but the scaled-down virtual format could limit debate on a resurgent coronavirus pandemic and crippling economic crisis. G-20 nations have deployed an unprecedented $11 trillion so far to accelerate an equitable and sustainable economic recovery from the coronavirus crisis, according to a report released ahead of the G-20 leaders' summit in Saudi Arabia this week. G-20 nations also spent a combined $21 billion to enhance pandemic preparedness and response, the statement added. "Through a united global response, the G20 is determined to continue tackling the major challenges of our time and work towards finding solutions," he added.

The assassination of an Al Qaeda commander in Tehran by an Israeli hit squad would only have been undertaken at the request of American intelligence services, sources tell Insider. Mounting an operation like the one that killed Abu Mohammed al Masri can take years of preparation. Israel would have traditionally sought valuable compensation for conducting such a dangerous and complex operation inside Iran, they told Insider. US intelligence officials confirmed last week that an Israeli operation on August 7, in an upscale Tehran neighborhood, assassinated Abu Mohammed al Masri. Masri was a longtime Egyptian member of Al Qaeda dating back to the late 1980s.
