Saudi crown prince dismisses Trump remarks about reliance on U.S.

Mohammed bin Salman Saudi Arabia's crown prince in New York in March 2018

Lebanon's Al Akhbar newspaper cited an Arab source as saying Saudi Arabia had informed Turkey that Khashoggi was now in the Saudi capital Riyadh.

Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman has responded back to Donald Trump's recent remarks that claimed that the king won't last in power for even two weeks without the U.S. military support and demanded that he should pay for it.

Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi went missing after visiting Saudi consulate in Istanbul to sort out paper work.

Yemeni activist and 2011 victor of the Nobel Peace Prize, Tawakkol Karman, hit out at the Saudi authorities and told AFP that she believed Khashoggi "was kidnapped in this gangster's den that is supposed to be a consulate".

Turkey's presidential spokesperson said on Wednesday that Khashoggi remains inside the Saudi consulate, a day after his fiancée reported he had failed to emerge from a meeting in the mission.

When asked whether U.S. -Saudi relations were just as good as they were 24 hours ago before the President said these things, the Saudi leader replied in the affirmative, saying if you look at the picture overall, you have 99 percent of good things and one bad issue.

Dr Courtney Freer is a senior advisor at Gulf State Analytics and a research officer for the Kuwait Programme at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Human rights groups have urged Riyadh to shed light on Khashoggi's whereabouts.

The French interior ministry, meanwhile, said it was concerned about unspecified "threats" received by Meng's wife. But it does not have the power to send officers into countries to arrest individuals or issue arrest warrants.

A Saudi Arabian columnist remained missing on Friday as supporters rallied outside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul calling for his "release" despite Riyadh's denials that he was being held there. We didn't want to move fast with unknown investors.

Yemeni activist and 2011 victor of the Nobel Peace Prize Tawakkol Karman slammed Saudi authorities at the gathering.

He claimed that Khashoggi had left the building not long after he entered earlier this week, alleging, "If he's in Saudi Arabia, I would know that".

"As we speak today, there [are] Saudi intellectuals and journalists jailed. And the Turkish government must assume its role and deal with the case of Jamal Khashoggi because Turkish sovereignty has been violated", she noted.

The head of the Turk-Arab Media Association, of which Khashoggi is a member, told the Times that Turkish security officers at the consulate checked surveillance camera footage and did not see the journalist walk out.

"As a journalist and editor, I learn so much from him and his experiences".

Indeed, Saudi Arabia has been among the world's leaders in military spending in recent years, reflecting massive expenditures on their war in Yemen, and continued purchases of huge amounts of USA arms. What else can you tell us about Trump's comment and reactions to it? "I won't be able to rest easy until you appear safe and sound".
