Endeavor Considers Withdrawing From Saudi Arabia Deal

Endeavor Considers Withdrawing From Saudi Arabia Deal”

Fears are growing over the fate of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi after Turkish officials said they believe he was murdered inside the Saudi consulate.

Alphabet Inc's Google on Monday became the latest company to say it would boycott a business conference in Saudi Arabia, after the disappearance of prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey. Although officials agreed to the investigation, Whitson said that the message from the Saudi government is clear.

"It sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers".

President Donald Trump told reporters Monday that he was aware of the report but did not know if it was correct.

Claims that missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi recorded audio of his own torture and murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on his Apple Watch are being questioned by cyber security experts.

Trump tweeted early Monday that Salman denied any knowledge of "whatever may have happened 'to our Saudi Arabian citizen'".

"As long as there is no good evidence, the more plausible scenario is a shrewd cover story to protect Turkish sources & methods - a cover story that would predictably go viral".

He added that Khashoggi's disappearance had a "serious impact on the global economic attitude towards the kingdom".

Referring to a $110 billion weapons deal previously signed by Riyadh and Washington and noting that Khashoggi was not a U.S. citizen, Trump told journalists last week that he didn't really want to stop "massive amounts of money" from being poured into the USA from Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia has warned that it would retaliate against any punishment with even greater measures.

October 9: Cengiz writes an op-ed in Washington Post, saying her husband-to-be had applied for USA citizenship and that his reason for visiting Turkey was to take care of all necessary paperwork for them to marry before he returned to Washington.

"It would lead to Saudi Arabia's failure to commit to producing 7.5 million barrels". The US president has been pressing King Salman and Opec to boost production for weeks to drive down high crude oil prices, caused in part by the coming re-imposition of oil sanctions on Iran after the US withdrawal from that's country's nuclear deal with world powers.

The disappearance of the Saudi dissident has cast a different light on bin Salmon, whom press reports last spring dubbed "Prince Charming".

Saudi officials arrive at the the consulate in Istanbul where Mr Khashoggi was last seen. The CEO of JPMorgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, along with several other Wall Street top brass such as Ford Executive Chairman Bill Ford have pulled out of the kingdom's Future Investment Initiative conference. UAE businessman Khalaf Ahmad Al-Habtoor urged a boycott of Virgin, which has suspended discussions with PIF over a planned $1 billion investment.
