Turkish President on Khashoggi probe

28 October 2018

US President Donald Trump says he will be briefed tomorrow by US officials looking into the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi Arabian agents.

Khashoggi, who was a columnist for The Washington Post, died inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul earlier this month. To do this, Saudi agents typically "sit at a cafe and talk" with dissidents, the official said, although this obviously did not happen with Khashoggi.

For their part, the Trump administration and the USA defence industry are scrambling to save the few actual deals in a much-touted $110 billion arms package for Saudi Arabia.

In Turkey, Erdogan demanded that Saudi Arabia provide answers about where Khashoggi's body was and who ordered the operation. A friend of the Khashoggi family told The Associated Press that Salah has been under a travel ban since previous year.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said Britain also was taking action against any Saudi suspects in Khashoggi's death and that any individuals holding UK visas would have them revoked directly.

Should Western nations halt their sales, one country that might step in is Russian Federation.

The latest focus appears to be on a well in the garden of the Saudi consulate building. It is unclear if any of those deals are nearing implementation.

If we are going to have any aspiration of getting through the group, it's a game first and foremost we have to win. We don't necessarily need a big victory but the most important thing is winning".

He said no Saudi linked to the murder should enjoy diplomatic immunity as set out by the Vienna Convention.

The Attorney General of Saudi Arabia Sheikh Saud al-Muadjib said 18 nationals of the country are under investigation, whose identities have not been revealed.

Directors of the Saudi, Russian and United Arab Emirates' sovereign wealth funds took part in the opening panel. His death has sparked worldwide condemnation and put major strains on US-Saudi relations.

Erdogan spoke about Khashoggi's killing for roughly 20 minutes, beginning his remarks with what he called a "refresh" of the events surrounding the death.

"There's a lot of speculation and unverified information around", he said.

In his address to the Turkish AK Party parliamentarians, Erdogan left no room for doubt that Khashoggi's death was a pre-planned and premeditated affair.

"We will continue to explore additional measures to hold those responsible accountable".

Diederik Cops, a researcher at the Flemish Peace Institute in Belgium, suggested that the European focus on military goods would have been more appropriate years ago in reaction to the Yemen conflict, where Saudi relies heavily on foreign arms and equipment. But he said he was confident of the full cooperation of his father Saudi King Salman in the probe and vowed full retribution for all the guilty.

In the United Kingdom, a Downing Street spokesperson said Erdoğan's statement showed "there are many questions which only the Saudis have the answers to". The larger group reportedly contained Saudi generals, according to CNN. The Saudis claim that because of this, they believed that Khashggi had departed unharmed. The airstrikes have killed hundreds of Yemeni civilians, including women and children, since the commencement of the war in 2015.

Critics claim Saudi forces have targeted hospitals and schools, killing thousands of civilians, and have created the conditions for a humanitarian crisis in the country.

On Wednesday, Spanish activists protested outside Parliament holding bomb-shaped signs reading "Decisions that kill". The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

However, Trudeau indicated in an interview with the CBC on Tuesday morning that the terms of the "difficult" contract prevented the government from speaking at length about the deal, which was facilitated by the Canadian Commercial Corporation.
