Meetings Related to Lebanese Situation Held in Saudi Arabia

The bill, introduced in the US House of Representatives on Wednesday, also includes a prohibition on security assistance, intelligence, training and equipment, but does not extend to activities related to safeguarding US diplomatic posts or personnel.

It was the first indication Ankara has shared its key investigative evidence. Erdogan asked. "We are seeking answers to this. It was a repulsive incident, and no one can justify it", Prince Mohammed said.

Speaking at an investment forum he was hosting in Riyadh, the crown prince called the killing a "heinous crime" but offered no new information on what happened.

CIA Director Gina Haspel, who departed for a trip to Turkey on Monday, listened to an audio recording of Khashoggi's interrogation and killing, people familiar with her meetings there told the Washington Post.

According to NBC, both Khalid and Saud bin Abdullah Al Qahtani, a senior official who was recently fired for his role in Khashoggi's death, had courted Khashoggi for at least a year and told him he would be welcomed back despite his dissident writing about the kingdom.

Striking a defiant tone, Prince Mohammed told global investors at a major conference in Riyadh that the furor over Khashoggi's killing at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul would not derail the kingdom's reform drive.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday that the Saudi official will meet Turkish prosecutors during his visit.

An AFP reporter at the scene said that more bodies were being brought out of the wrecked carriages. Some passengers were crushed to death, Ministry of National Defence spokesman Chen Chung-chi said.

During the panel MbS touted Saudi Arabia's success in its efforts to transform its oil-dependent economy and make the deeply conservative kingdom a more tolerant society.

But Wednesday's telephone conversation was the first time he has spoken to the crown prince, who is seen as the driving force in day-to-day rule of the kingdom.

"We will prove to the world that the two governments (Saudi and Turkish) are cooperating to punish any criminal, any culprit, and at the end justice will prevail", he said to applause.

Britain, also a major weapons supplier to the kingdom, described Riyadh's explanations as lacking credibility.

After weeks of denying involvement in his disappearance, Saudi Arabia on Saturday announced that Khashoggi died in a fight inside the consulate. The U.S. has always been Saudi Arabia's most important partner and Trump has made the kingdom the centerpiece of his efforts to isolate Iran.

A number of high-profile business and political figures have pulled out of the conference over the death of Khashoggi, a prominent critic of Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler. The younger Khashoggi, who one source said holds dual U.S. -Saudi citizenship and had thus far been under a travel ban, departed on Wednesday.
