Saudi Arabia official: Reaction to Khashoggi killing is 'fairly hysterical'

Khashoggi's fiancee said she declined an invitation to the White House to meet Trump, because she did not believe the Presiden't motives were honest.

While no explicit link has been made between Trump's soft stance and the promises to increase production, oil is Saudi Arabia's greatest bargaining chip in avoiding punishment over Khashoggi's murder.

Jubeir told a security summit in Bahrain that Riyadh's relations with the United States were "ironclad" amid what he described as "media hysteria" over the killing of Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, which sparked a global outcry and strained the kingdom's ties with the West.

Mr Al Jubeir said he has no concern about the future of the region as "light always triumphs over darkness", and therefore he said he believes the Middle East "will end up in a better place, a more prosperous, more peaceful place".

They had first insisted Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, then said he was killed in an argument that degenerated into a brawl.

Gruesome reports have alleged that he was killed and dismembered by a team sent from Saudi Arabia to silence the Washington Post columnist, who had criticised the kingdom's powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Why was Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate? Mattis and others, meanwhile, have said the U.S.is providing key support to the Saudi-led coalition, and that the assistance is helping the kingdom improve its targeting.

"They had a very bad original concept, it was carried out poorly and the cover-up was the worst in the history of cover-ups", he told reporters last week.

Mr Jubeir told a security summit in Bahrain that Riyadh's relations with the United States were "iron clad" amid what he described as "media hysteria" over the killing of Mr Khashoggi, which sparked a global outcry and strained the kingdom's ties with the West.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo this week announced moves against 21 Saudis to either revoke their visas or make them ineligible for U.S. visas after the Khashoggi killing.

They did bring in Carmelo Anthony , but Butler would obviously a massive improvement over any of those players. However, rules when it comes to protecting picks in this situation are tricky.

While he did not mention Saudi Arabia directly, he did acknowledge the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had revoked visas of those implicated.

Michael Richard Pompeo added the United States was also looking into whether to take action under a law named after Sergei Magnitsky, the anti-corruption accountant who died in Russian custody, that would impose financial sanctions on individuals behind Khashoggi's death.

He repeatedly reassured Khashoggi, say multiple sources, he had nothing to fear by going back home.

His visits to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to get the documents, according to Turkish investigators, presented the Saudis with the opportunity they were seeking to seize and kill him.

Saudi Arabia will prosecute the suspects in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al Jubeir says, in response to a call by Turkey for their extradition.

"Who gave this order?"

In his speech, Erdogan indicated that more evidence was yet to be revealed.

It also said they were accused of murder by "premeditation, monstrous intent or by torture".

Saudi state television quoted the Saudi public prosecutor on Thursday as saying Riyadh was interrogating suspects on the basis of information given by a joint Saudi-Turkish task force.
