Turkey's Erdogan says Khashoggi tapes given to key foreign nations

Jamal Khashoggi's fiancée Hatice Cengiz in London on 29 October 2018

The recordings that could reveal the killing of Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi embassy in Turkey in shocking detail have been shared with France, Germany, Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom, and the US, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said.

It remains unknown when Sherman's bill will be brought to the floor for a vote, but it will probably be after the new Democratic-controlled House of Representatives convenes on 3 January 2019.

Riyadh is under huge global pressure to explain why Khashoggi was murdered inside the Saudi consulate in Turkey's Istanbul in September.

The bill would come as a huge blow for Saudi who just last Monday launched a project to build the country's first nuclear research reactor.

Mr Sherman's bill could block Saudi Arabia's plans to obtain nuclear technology from the US.

Many people in the United States now want to see the relationship between Washington and Riyadh terminated. "Now I think we have a chance", Sherman told Vox.

A Turkish official said two members of a Saudi Arabian team were sent to the consulate to cover up evidence shortly after his death there.

"Saudi Arabia does not want to acquire any nuclear bomb, but without a doubt, if Iran developed a nuclear bomb, we will follow suit as soon as possible", he told CBS back then.

"We have not been able to get answers from Saudi Arabia about who ordered the murder", the minister said, stressing that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is confident that King Salman Bin Abdulaziz did not order Khashoggi's murder.

Mohammed Bin Salman (MbS) and Saudi Arabia have changed their official position on what happened to the journalist in the face of global pressure.

Riyadh, which is leading a so-called coalition of its regional allies in a years-long war against the people of Yemen, confirmed the decision in a statement Friday.
