Saudis reject Turkish demand to extradite suspects in Khashoggi’s death

  • Turkey clears up Khashoggi case in 10 days despite US

Saudi officials initially denied having anything to do with Khashoggi's disappearance after he entered the consulate, which he had visited to obtain paperwork for a planned marriage.

Mattis said that even as the US moves forward with additional punitive measures in the wake of the murder, it will continue to support a "people to people partnership" with Saudi Arabia, a statement notable for its lack of mention of MBS.

The columnist went into self-imposed exile in the United States, where he wrote a column for the Washington Post, which was often critical of the crown prince. The stakes are much higher in the Khashoggi case, however, as some of those implicated are close to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom's heir apparent whose condemnation of the killing failed to ease suspicions that he was involved.

As worldwide pressure has grown, President Trump has promised "severe punishment" if the Saudi government - a close ally of the US - was found to be linked to the killing. We will hold those responsible accountable. The Saudi foreign minister said that his country still saw the principles of the Beirut conference in 2002 that calls for Israel to withdraw from occupied Palestinian territory and allow a Palestinian state within 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as the capital as the pre-requisite in order for peace and normalized ties.

Britain and France both sell large quantities of weapons to Saudi Arabia and are likely to be wary of any proposal that could damage their defence industries.

"The individuals are Saudi nationals, they're detained in Saudi Arabia, the investigation is in Saudi Arabia and they will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia", he said at the Bahrain summit.

"We are pleased that he is now able to do so", Palladino said.

He added that the Saudis who killed Khashoggi must reveal the location of his body.

Last week, Mr Trump toughened his stance on Saudi Arabia and described the killing and subsequent changing narratives from Riyadh as part of "the worst cover-up in the history of cover-ups".

"Our Secretary of State has already revoked visas and will be taking additional measures", Mattis said.

Sanctions should come as "a European response" and be "clear and all domains", the French leader said. The U.S. government is averse to breaking with the Saudi regime, given its strategic role and alliance with the U.S. and Israel against Iran, as well as the enormous profits that U.S. oil and Pentagon contractors make from the relationship with Saudi Arabia.

In June of past year, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain collectively severed ties with Doha, accusing it of supporting terrorism. The expressions they use are very interesting.

Saudi Arabia has announced the dismissals of six officials who worked directly under bin Salman.

In a furious opinion piece published last night, Turki al-Dakhil, general manager of the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya news channel, warned the USA "will stab its own economy to death" if it tried to impose sanctions.
