Turkey puts pressure on Saudi Arabia over missing journalist

In rebuttal to Trump, bin Salman says Saudi won't pay US for kingdom's security Saudi source denies journalist Khashoggi was killed at consulate in Istanbul

"I am concerned. I don't like hearing about it".

Dujarric told reporters at United Nations headquarters in NY on Monday that Guterres "has been an advocate for journalists". Right now, nobody knows anything about it, but there's some pretty bad stories going around. "I do not like it".

The Saudi writer spent past year in the U.S in self-imposed exile, after he fled the kingdom amid a crackdown on intellectuals and activists who criticized the policies of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Turkish officials have suggested Khashoggi was murdered. Riyadh denies that and claims he left the compound on his own. "The free world deserves answers".

"Our country's values should be and must be a cornerstone of our foreign policy with foes and allies alike", he said.

"You would hope that the United States would at least start asking very serious questions about what was going on, and press the Saudis for answers", Ivo Daalder, a former U.S. envoy to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, told CNN.

"We hope to have results very quickly", he added.

A source described by Reuters as a "Turkish official" told the wire service, "The initial assessment of the Turkish police is that Mr. Khashoggi has been killed at the consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul. But shouldn't we aspire to allow the marketplace of ideas to be open?" "The consulate officials can not save themselves by simply saying "he has left", Erdogan said.

He visited the consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to obtain documentation to finalize his divorce; his Turkish fiancée waited for him outside the building, and reported him missing after he didn't return.

"The 33-year-old crown prince went on to say that Saudi Arabia had agreed to buy $110 billion worth of United States weapons and signed investment deals worth billions more, some "$400 billion" in total, since Trump took office in early 2017, and described the deals as "a good achievement" for Trump.

Turkish officials have said authorities believe Khashoggi was killed at the consulate, allegations denied by Saudi Arabia.

His last piece was published on 11 September, and the paper published a blank column on Friday to highlight his disappearance.

India wants US sanctions waiver after cutting Iran oil imports
While Washington has said it wants to cut Iran's oil exports to zero, Iran and Saudi Arabia say that is unlikely. The industry has been worrying that an entirely effective ban on Iranian oil exports would strain supplies.


Media reports say two airplanes carrying 15 Saudi nationals arrived in Istanbul around the same time of Khashoggi's disappearance, fueling rumors that they were sent to dispose of the body. He has done business with billionaire Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.

The official quoted by SPA underlined that Saudi Arabia was responsible for the safety and well-being of all its citizens, wherever they may be, and that its authorities "are diligently following up on this matter to uncover the complete facts".

Khashoggi is a contributor to the The Washington Post and was twice editor-in-chief of Al-Watan, a Saudi newspaper.

Khashoggi was one journalist who chose to "report the reality".

So the prospects of this changing anything, I think, are unlikely. He warned that "we are not going to put up with these disgusting prices much longer". While MBS has attracted attention with his modernization campaign to roll back some of the kingdom's ultraconservative societal regulations, human rights groups say the government has ramped up its crackdown on activists and dissenters.

"The 33-year-old crown prince went on to say that Saudi Arabia had agreed to buy $110 billion worth of US weapons and signed investment deals worth billions more, some $400 billion in total, since Trump took office in early 2017, and described the deals as a good achievement" for Trump.

"In Saudi Arabia at the moment, people simply don't dare to speak", he wrote in the Washington Post. "The relations have the potential of evolving into a crisis at any moment", said Ozgur Unluhisarcikli, director of the German Marshall Fund's Ankara office.

A military hawk, Graham has enthusiastically supported Trump's policy of working with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf Arab states to contain the influence of Iran.

Yet, Ankara appears to see a hostile motive in the Khashoggi affair.

The consulate rejected claims that the journalist was killed there as "baseless".

The Turkish government is looking into Khashoggi's disappearance.

He entered the consulate in Istanbul last Tuesday to get documents for his forthcoming marriage.
