'Rogue killers' might have killed Saudi journalist

'Rogue killers' might have killed Saudi journalist

The investigators arrived in unmarked vehicles and made no comment to journalists waiting outside as they entered.

Turkey accepted a Saudi proposal last week to form a joint working group to investigate Khashoggi's disappearance, which has sparked threats of economic sanctions from Western allies. While privately expressing certainty about what happened, Turkish officials have voiced doubts about their ability to link the alleged murder, and the people it says were the assassins, directly to Prince Mohammed.

King Salman in his telephone call to Erdogan said "no one will undermine the strength of this relationship", a statement from the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs said late Sunday.

Saudi state owned Al-Arabiya news channel delivered a bullish message to the USA and the global community in response to growing calls for sanctions against Riyadh over the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The New York Times has taken another strong action against Saudi Arabia in response to the disappearance of Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi.

Trump dispatched Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to the Kingdom.

"There's something really bad and disgusting about that, if that was the case, so we're going to have to see", Trump said.

Fellow Republican, Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, appearing on "This Week", called for "severe action" which he said would affect arms sales and involvement in Yemen. "We are following the situation closely, and unless a substantially different set of facts emerges, I won't be attending the FII conference in Riyadh".

"As of this moment, they (Saudi) deny it and they deny it vehemently".

It's unclear, however, whether Saudi Arabia would be willing to unilaterally cut production.

The head of Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television published a column on Sunday warning of the consequences of USA penalties.

IMF Chief Economist: Pakistan has not approached IMF
It left 2018 growth forecasts for the two countries unchanged at 2.9 per cent for the United States and 6.6 per cent for China. The organisation added that the ongoing Brexit negotiations had also created "pervasive uncertainty" about future trade costs.

Even now analysts are anxious that Saudi Arabia may tempt countries and political figures who are seeking answers about the fate of the journalist.

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation issued a statement to praise the Turkish-Saudi joint investigative committee. Citing a person familiar with the call, CNN said MBS asked specifically to speak with Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, to deny the accusations.

The Foreign Office spokesman responding to a query about Pakistan's stance on the issue said "we understand that the investigation was ongoing and it would therefore be appropriate to await the outcome".

Uber Technologies Inc Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi, Viacom Inc CEO Bob Bakish and billionaire Steve Case, one of the founders of AOL, said they were no longer going to attend.

Britain, France and Germany also released a rare joint statement saying they were treating Khashoggi's disappearance "with the utmost seriousness" and calling for a "credible investigation".

"Riyadh is the most important customer of U.S. companies, as Saudi Arabia buys 10 percent of the total weapons that these United States companies produce, and buys 85 percent from the USA army, which means what's left for the rest of the world is only five percent; in addition to the end of Riyadh's investments in the USA government, which reaches $800 billion". "The Saudis said we could only get a brief tour".

"We are seeing a massive backlash right now on tech companies and investors who are receiving funding from the Saudi Arabian government", Constellation Research's Ray Wang told CNBC.

What evidence Turkish officials could gather at the consulate remained unknown.

The Saudi king has ordered an internal investigation.

According to the security sources, who refused to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media, the members which include both Turkish and Saudi officials are holding talks.
