Following a contentious administration briefing about the war in Yemen and the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the Senate voted to advance a measure that would tie the hands of President Donald Trump's foreign policy as it relates to Saudi Arabia.

The two leaders, who are in Argentina for the G20 summit, met in the prince's residence in Buenos Aires and discussed Saudi Arabia's readiness to supply India with oil and petroleum products.

In a tweet later, he said they would also discuss the fallout from Khashoggi's murder.

The sanctions will freeze the assets of those individuals in Canada, said the country's foreign minister in a statement.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was not on the list of the 17 individuals sanctioned by Canada.

Freeland said Canada had a responsibility to react, calling Khashoggi's murder "vile" and "premeditated", adding that to date, Saudi Arabia's explanation lacks consistency and credibility.

The murder of Jamal Khashoggi is abhorrent and represents an unconscionable attack on the freedom of expression of all individuals. "It's very important to act and to speak only on the basis of real certainty", said the Canadian minister.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., voted against moving ahead with the resolution but said a day earlier that "some kind of response" was needed from the United States for the Saudis' role in Khashoggi's death.

The Trudeau government has faced calls to cancel the armoured-vehicles contract but the prime minister has said the penalty for doing so would be "in the billions of dollars".

The block on USA military support for the Saudi-led campaign in Yemen was an "unprecedented setback for the Saudis and the Trump administration", Bruce Riedel, of the Brookings Institution, said. In a statement, the American president said "foolishly" cancelling US$110-billion in arms sales - as some in Congress have suggested - would only mean that Saudi Arabia would go to other countries to acquire them. Riyadh said last month that it had.

An effort underway in Washington, D.C., would create an in-your-face way to remind Saudi Arabia of the killing of Jamal Khashoggi: Rename the street in front of the Saudi embassy in honor of the slain journalist.

"During this period of review, no new arms export permits are being issued", she said.

After weeks of saying he had left the consulate alive, the Saudi administration later admitted he was killed there, blaming his death on a group of rogue Saudi operatives.
