  • Saudi men linked to Jamal Khashoggi disappearance leave a hotel

A White House aide said President Trump is serious when he says there'll be "severe punishment" if Saudi Arabia is found to be complicit in the disappearance.

"The Saudi economy has vital and influential roles for the global economy", the source told SPA.

Jamal Khashoggi, a well-known journalist and critic of the Saudi government, has not been seen since he attended Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul last week.

Saudi officials maintain they aren't involved in Khashoggi's disappearance and claim he left the consulate shortly after entering earlier this month. What is not clear is if anyone other than Turkish officials has seen or heard them.

Journalists report from outside the Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018.

The Trump administration plans to reimpose sanctions on oil exports from Iran on November 5 and Trump has urged Saudi Arabia to boost oil output to help make up for the loss.

The writer, an advocate for reform and a thorn in the side of the country's autocratic Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, left Saudi Arabia a year ago over fears for his safety.

Turkish government sources say police believe he was killed but Riyadh denies that.

President Donald Trump has declared the USA will uncover the truth about what happened to journalist and US resident Jamal Khashoggi, whose possible murder at Saudi hands after disappearing in Istanbul has captured worldwide attention.

A delegation from Saudi Arabia has now arrived in Turkey as part of a joint investigation into the disappearance. He says if the kingdom doesn't buy its weaponry from the United States, they will buy it from Russian Federation.

Turkey's Foreign Minister, Mevut Cavusoglu, said Saudi Arabia was not yet co-operating with the investigation and urged the kingdom to allow Turkish officials to enter the consulate.

Cengiz also said Turkish authorities had not told her about any recordings and Khashoggi was officially "still missing".

"I think we would've known by now". "The Saudi Arabia government has been asked, the ambassador has been asked directly to bring information back".

But both the White House and the kingdom are under mounting pressure as concern grows over the fate of the veteran journalist, who hasn't been seen since he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2. However, the Khashoggi affair has caused technology executives and the media, including the Financial Times, Bloomberg, and CNN, to pull out of an investment summit in Riyadh scheduled for next week. His administration has been on friendly terms with the Gulf regional power since taking office, supporting the Saudi-led airstrike campaign in Yemen and brokering an arms deal that could be worth $110 billion over the next decade.
