Saudi Arabia's King Salman Bin Abdulaziz swerved around the issue of Jamal Khashoggi's murder in his annual speech to the kingdom's top advisers. It's his first major public address since the journalist was killed. Instead, the king stressed priorities for the upcoming year and also reiterated full support for his son, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
