Is This the Break With Saudi Arabia We've Been Waiting For?

Is This the Break With Saudi Arabia We've Been Waiting For?”

Turkey on Saturday stepped up pressure on Saudi Arabia by accusing the kingdom of failing to cooperate with a probe into the journalist's disappearance.

The index later recovered to close 3.5% down.

"The country that can help us get to the bottom of this is Saudi Arabia", he said.

"By leaking information on the case in a controlled manner, Turks have signaled their willingness to confront the Saudis if they have enough global support, particularly from the West", said Gonul Tol, director of the Middle East Institute's Center for Turkish Studies in Washington.

"Just because they are an ally in an important mission, which is containing Iranian expansion in the region, can not allow us to overlook or walk away from that". Turkey will probably blame Saudi Arabia more for the killing - while the Saudis will say they weren't directly involved.

Sanders suggested that cutting ties to the war in Yemen would be among the strongest responses the US could undertake.

Turkish officials have said they believe Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate and lurid claims have been leaked to media that he was tortured and even dismembered.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) welcomed the statement by the official Saudi source, who affirmed Saudi Arabia's total rejection of "any threats and attempts to undermine them, whether by threatening economic sanctions, using political pressure or repeating false accusations that will not harm the Kingdom and its staunch and Arab stances". It has become the biggest show for investors to promote Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's reform vision. It is unclear what those punishments could be, but Trump said he did not want to harm USA jobs by halting arms trade.

The Saudi stock market has dropped more than 6.8 percent after President Donald Trump threatened "severe punishment" over the disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

Sen. Bernie Sanders joined calls for the U.S.to impose sanctions on Saudi Arabia if the country is responsible for the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at a consulate in Turkey earlier this month.

Despite its alleged complicity in the 9/11 attacks, a long history of supporting radical Islamist groups, one of the world's worst human rights records, and the prosecution of a savage war in Yemen, Saudi Arabia-up until now-has largely escaped censure by both Republicans and Democrats in Washington.

Saudi Arabian equities slumped on concern the nation's relationship with the USA may sour over the disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

Brennan added that Trump's posture toward authoritarian dictators, "condemnations" of the press and "denials of reality" have "encouraged Mohammed bin Salman to go down this road".

Trump visited the kingdom on his first overseas trip as president and has touted arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

"So, we do that, we really are hurting our country a lot more than we're hurting Saudi Arabia".

At Saudi Arabia's request, it's establishing a joint working group with Turkey to investigate Khashoggi's fate, Ibrahim Kalin, Erdogan's spokesman, told reporters on October 11. After the bus bombing, which killed 40 young boys, MbS was reported to have said in a meeting with military brass, "we want to leave a big impact on the consciousness of Yemeni generations".

Those policies are all seen as initiatives of the crown prince, who has also presided over a roundup of activists and businessmen.
