Turkey demands permission to search Saudi consulate after journalist Khashoggi's disappearance

Officials talked up the Saudi Aramco initial public offering (IPO) with worldwide exchanges, global banks and U.S. President Donald Trump.

"It would likely trigger a diplomatic crisis with Turkey as well as play into a narrative in (Washington) DC that views Saudi Arabia under MBS as prone to seemingly reckless gambits with little apparent thought for the consequences, be it the blockade of Qatar, the detention of Saad Hariri, the rupture with Canada, to say nothing of the war in Yemen". Trump told a campaign rally in MS on Tuesday.

"We hope not to come across an undesirable situation about missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi", he noted, adding that whatever came of this, "we will be the ones to declare it to the world".

"I believe late 2020, early 2021", he said, discussing the timing of the IPO in an interview at the royal palace in Riyadh.

"Everyone heard about the rumors of Saudi Arabia canceling the IPO of Aramco, delaying that, and that this is delaying Vision 2030", he said.

He said police were examining CCTV footage of entrances and exits at the consulate and Istanbul airport.

The mystery surrounding his disappearance or death get murkier with each passing day, in part because of the geopolitical intrigue and triangle of potential state actors who have their fingerprints all over the fateful October 2 day that Mr. Khashoggi disappeared into the Saudi consulate in the Turkish capital of Istanbul.
