Turkey warns Saudi Arabia against stalling Jamal Khashoggi murder probe

"When I asked him why he was anxious, he didn't really want to reply, but eventually he told me he was getting proof that Saudi Arabia had used chemical weapons".

Hatice Cengiz, who waited outside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul when her partner went inside and never returned, gave a barbed message to the American president.

In response to the killing, Mattis said Saturday, the administration is pursuing "twin imperatives" of "protecting America and holding accountable those responsible for this murder".

Saudi authorities have arrested 18 men over the murder and President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has requested they be extradited for trial in Turkey.

A team of 15 Saudi agents was involved in the killing of Khashoggi - a Washington Post contributing columnist - inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul this month, Turkish officials have concluded, calling it a premeditated crime.

Sources close to murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi are saying that it's possible he was killed because he was about to reveal Saudi Arabian use of chemical weapons in Yemen.

Murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's fiancée has urged U.S. President Donald Trump to help reveal the truth behind his killing and ensure that justice is served.

"If the Saudi state does not deliver full accountability for his murder, the legacy will be one of terror".

The killing of Khashoggi and Saudi Arabia's shifting explanations for what happened after he entered the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul on October 2 have focused attention on Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's missteps and raised questions among critics about whether he's fit to succeed his father, King Salman.

"It's important that we maintain relationships with Turkey - they're our ally - and Saudi Arabia, who is leading the fight against Iranian proliferation in Yemen". The U.S. has faced criticism as having a responsibility in the conflict because of its military support for Saudi Arabia, including providing intelligence, training and targeting information. Many current and former Western officials have argued that such an operation could have been authorised only by Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Cengiz met Khashoggi in May at a conference in Istanbul and their relationship blossomed.

Turkish law required that Khashoggi, who was divorced, provide proof that he did not have a wife and thus his trip to the consulate.

"We agreed that when we have more clarity. we will try to find a unified European solution or reaction from all member states of the European Union", German Chancellor Angela Merkel said, referring to the sale of arms to the kingdom.
