Leading US senator blames Saudi prince for Khashoggi death

Trump believes Saudi explanation for Khashoggi death is “credible.” Not many others do.

The United States could impose sanctions on the prince if he were found culpable in the killing, Corker said, but there should be a collective response with USA allies that are looking to Washington for leadership.

Qahtani was one of five officials Saudi King Salman has fired, according to Saudi state media, following the global controversy over Khashoggi's disappearance.

"The strategic relationship is important for both countries", he said.

Mr.al-Jubeir, appearing Sunday on Fox News, conceded Mr. Khashoggi was killed by Saudi security personnel in the consulate, but claimed the country's leadership did not order it.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and top government figures have remained cautious in their public statements, stopping short of pinning the blame on Saudi Arabia and referring instead to the prosecutors' investigation.

"Absolutely not, it's insulting", Paul said on "Fox News Sunday" when asked if he believed Khashoggi was killed after getting into a fistfight with Saudi security officials after entering the consulate on October 2.

Turkish officials say a 15-member team, including Saudi security officials and an autopsy expert with a bone saw, arrived in Turkey the same day Khashoggi vanished after entering the consulate. "And I think that's the way they're gonna write this off". "But I want to get to the answer", U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters this weekend, when asked about the Saudi investigation and Riyadh's subsequent firing of Saudi officials over the incident.

Germany is the fourth largest exporter of weapons to Saudi Arabia after the United States, Britain and France.

The crown prince has denied any involvement.

Her comments reflect a collective shock in Europe and elsewhere at the as-yet unexplained events in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul that could fundamentally effect ties with the kingdom. 'He was really shocked that there was such a big reaction to it, ' said a person close to the royal court. When the media reported a few days later that he had been killed there, they called the accusations "baseless". "I agree with those who say that arms exports, which are already limited, can not happen given the circumstances", she said on Sunday.

Joel Rubin, a former U.S. State Department and congressional staffer, said there are numerous options for Congress to punish Riyadh or pressure Mr. Trump to do so.

However, they said the Saudi appointment would not now go ahead.

Trump, who has significant business interests in Saudi Arabia, has defended the kingdom - a key American ally in the Middle East for over 70 years, despite its poor human rights track record.

His Treasury Secretary, Mnuchin, said he would not attend a Saudi investment conference on Tuesday, although he would still visit Riyadh as planned for talks with his counterpart there on joint efforts to counter terrorist financing.
