RIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's crown prince will participate in a G20 summit in Argentina at the end of the month, Al Arabiya television reported on Monday.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will head to the G20 summit as part of a foreign trip, it quoted Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih as saying.

The kingdom is facing a global outcry over the murder of prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the country's Istanbul consulate in early October, which has strained its ties with the West.
