Saudi Arabia vows to retaliate

Saudi Arabia vows to retaliate”

Turkey believes that he was murdered and dismembered inside the building by a 15-person Saudi team which entered and left the country on the same day.

"The objective of (Sunday's) message broadcasted by the Saudi national media is twofold: one goal is to satisfy the domestic public opinion that Saudi Arabia and its royal family will not be humiliated and the other goal is to send a message to the US", Mitreski, researcher at the University of Sydney, told AFP.

"He didn't really know, maybe - I don't want to get into his mind but it sounded to me - maybe these could have been rogue killers".

Trump tweeted Monday that he had spoken with the Saudi king, "who denies any knowledge" of what happened to Khashoggi.

Us Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is flying to Saudi Arabia immediately.

But Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Mnuchin should not attend the economic summit because the USA should not continue "business as usual" with Saudi Arabia in the wake of Khashoggi's disappearance.

The report came hours after Turkish investigators entered the consulate for what officials called a joint inspection of the building where Khashoggi was last seen alive, entering the diplomatic post, almost two weeks ago.

The kingdom's warning was not only a response to Trump, but also targeted at United States decision-makers amid rising calls for Congress to step in and put key arms sales on hold, he said.

On Saturday, Mr Trump threatened Saudi Arabia with "severe punishment" if it emerged that Mr Khashoggi had been killed inside the consulate but ruled out halting big military contracts with Riyadh.

The US president gave no evidence to support the theory.

"We've already seen how quickly people have pulled out of the Future Investment Conference", he said.

The sovereign-wealth fund acquired a less than 5% stake in Endeavor earlier this year, sources say.

Protestors hold pictures of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi during a demonstration in front of the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 8, 2018. "Certainly our involvement in Yemen with Saudi Arabia will be affected", said Flake, Republican-Arizona.

More than 20 Republican and Democratic senators instructed Trump last week to order an investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance under legislation that authorizes sanctions for perpetrators of extrajudicial killings, torture or other gross human rights violations. The lawmakers' letter was a preliminary step under the Global Magnitsky Act toward taking punitive action.
