Russian Federation hopes situation with missing Saudi journalist in Istanbul will be solved

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi

Mutreb replied, "Yes, we will drug you and kidnap you", in what the official said was an attempt at intimidation that violated the mission's objective.

Al-Jubeir echoed President Donald Trump's warnings against rushing to judgment against Saudi leaders, saying, "There is the presumption of innocence until proven guilty", and that some have "turned that upside down". "And we're going to get to the bottom of it and will make that determination", Trump told reporters in Nevada on Saturday. We are, the United States.

He continued, "I think it stretches credulity to believe that the Crown Prince wasn't involved in this".

Following the Saudi statement, Australian officials announced their withdrawal from an global investment summit planned in Riyadh. "So, what we would rather do is support the investigation, find out what happened". Bob Corker warned against assuming that the Saudis' "latest story holds water" and stressed that the USA must assess Khashoggi's death under the Global Magnitsky Act, which sanctions human rights offenders.

"Preliminary investigations conducted by the Public Prosecution showed that the suspects had travelled to Istanbul to meet with the citizen Jamal Khashoggi as there were indications of the possibility of his returning back to the country", the statement read. "We are determined to punish those who are responsible for this murder".

Asked by the Press Association if he agreed with Mr Trump on the credibility point, Mr Williamson said the United Kingdom was looking very closely at the information that had been released and was "obviously talking with allies".

When news of Khashoggi's disappearance first broke, aides made clear to White House chief of staff John Kelly that the case was not going away, two senior White House officials said.

The announcement on Sunday by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that he will "go into detail" about the Khashoggi case in a speech in parliament heightened hopes for some clarity in a case that has been shrouded in mystery, conflicting accounts and shocking allegations. Asked whether he thought the Saudi explanation was credible, he replied: "I do".

Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir speaks exclusively to Fox News" Bret Baier on the "terrible mistake' that happened at the Saudi consulate in Turkey and says those responsible will be held accountable.

Republican Senator Rand Paul Tweeted: "We should also halt all military sales, aid and cooperation immediately".

For Saudi Arabia's allies - particularly in the West - the question will be whether they believe that the prince, who has painted himself as a reformer, has any culpability.

"This is an admission of guilt, but the Saudis still aren't coming clean with the truth", Jack Reed, R.I., the ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in a statement.

"The United States and the rest of the worldwide community must condemn the murder of Mr. Khashoggi and the use of diplomatic posts as torture chambers for rogue nations", Coffman added.

Trump, under tremendous pressure from lawmakers, has warned of severe punishment.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the Trump administration will consider a "wide range" of responses if it is determined that Saudi leaders or officials played a role in the alleged murder of US - based journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"They tried to prevent him from shouting but he died", the official said.
