Turkish police uncover blatant media inaccuracy in Khashoggi, says expert

Turkish police uncover blatant media inaccuracy in Khashoggi, says expert

He said Riyadh would "respond to any action with a bigger one", pointing out that the oil superpower "plays an effective and vital role in the world economy".

Khashoggi, who wrote for the Washington Post and was critical of the government of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, disappeared after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Saudi King, Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has invited self-exiled former President of the Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed, who is now living in the United Kingdom after being granted political asylum there, to Saudi Arabia.

Turkey believes Khashoggi was deliberately killed in the consulate and his body removed.

TRT World sources deny Jamal Khashoggi's Apple Watch is part of the investigation into his disappearance after Turkish newspaper Sabah reported on Saturday the Saudi journalist may have recorded his own torture and murder at Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul.

But the President all but ruled out cancelling US$110 billion in U.S. arms sales to Saudi Arabia, arguing that doing so would be "very foolish for our country" and only end up harming United States defence industries and others. It comes as one of the first signs of the economic pain that Riyadh could suffer over the suspected murder.

Foreign capital is key to Saudi Arabia's plans to diversify its economy beyond oil and cut a 12.9 percent jobless rate among its citizens.

In disgust over Khashoggi's disappearance, some business leaders have pulled out of an investment conference later this month in Saudi Arabia.

Abdulaziz also said "some media" have circulated "false accusations" regarding Khashoggi's disappearance.

According to Daniel Patrick Welch, an American writer and political analyst, Trump's cynical and heartless reaction on dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's apparent assassination is in line with everything that the Empire stands for and has done. It would lead to Saudi Arabia's failure to commit to producing 7.5 million barrels.

President Trump warned the United States would inflict "severe punishment" if Saudi Arabia was behind his disappearance.

Mr Trump said: "There's a lot at stake".

Saudi Arabia has warned against threats to punish it over the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi last week, saying it would retaliate against any sanctions with tougher measures, as worldwide criticism increased.

The men stayed at the consulate for a few hours and then took flights back to Saudi Arabia.

Cengiz told The Associated Press (AP) on Friday that Khashoggi's last words to her before entering the building were, "See you later my darling".

He told CBS: "We're going to get to the bottom of it".

Trump visited the kingdom on his first overseas trip as president and has touted arms sales to Saudi Arabia. The Florida lawmaker added that the US can not allow an ally to carry out human rights abuses while calling out foes like Russian Federation and Syria for their crimes.

Media minister Jumana Ghunaimat said in a press statement on Sunday that Jordan stands with Saudi Arabia in the face of any targeted rumors and campaigns aimed without relying on facts.
