Saudi Arabia's foreign minister gave an interview to Fox News on Sunday, insisting that the kingdom was investigating the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi inside its consulate in Turkey and denying the nation's crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, was connected to the killing.
As Saudi Arabia's government officials struggle to explain the circumstances around the killing of Jamal Khashoggi in the country's Istanbul consulate. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has suggested that he's going to release details about the Turkish investigation Tuesday (October 23). World leaders are continuing to push for more information, after Saudi officials put forth multiple and conflicting accounts about Khashoggi's fate. One that he died during a fist fight, another in a chokehold. Turkish sources say the authorities have an audio recording purportedly documenting Khashoggi's torture and murder. Local media says the Turkish investigation is now focusing on 45 consulate workers, and that several have already given witness statements. The world is waiting for hard evidence. U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin labeled the admission he was killed in a fist fight "a good first step but not enough," adding though that it's still premature to discuss sanctions against Riyadh. Not too soon though for Germany's leader. Chancellor Angela Merkel saying she wants other EU states to follow its example in stopping arms exports to the kingdom as long as uncertainty over the killing remains. The Saudi foreign minister has called Khashoggi's killing a "huge and grave mistake". The bottom line from Riyadh is that whatever happened neither the Saudi King or Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman were aware. Both have called the journalist's son to send their condolences. Turkish president Erdogan has remained largely silent on the case, but is now expected to address the investigation at his weekly speech. No body has yet been found, and Turkish authorities have Khashoggi's fiancé under 24-hour police protection.
First a meeting with Saudi Arabia's king followed by his son, the powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was dispatched to Riyadh Tuesday to discuss the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who vanished after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. President Trump has speculated that "rogue killers" may be responsible. While U.S. media says Saudi Arabia may be preparing to acknowledge his death in a botched interrogation. The U.S. State Department says the crown prince agreed Tuesday to the importance of a transparent investigation. It comes as Turkish investigators gather clues at the consulate about what exactly happened.
President Donald Trump said he's still not satisfied with Saudi Arabia's explanation of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi's death as U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin met with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Riyadh. Derek Wallbank reports on "Bloomberg Daybreak: Australia."
U.S. President Donald Trump has joined European leaders in pushing Saudi Arabia for more answers about Jamal Khashoggi after Riyadh changed its story and acknowledged that the journalist died over two weeks ago at its consulate in Istanbul.
