Germany debars arms exports to Saudi Arabia over Khashoggi's death

White House

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has positioned himself as the future ruler of the world's largest oil supplier for decades to come.

"The crown prince was not aware of this [operation]".

Another suspect, Salah al-Tubaigy, is a renowned Saudi autopsy specialist with ties to the security forces.

Trump initially said he believed the Saudi account, but on Saturday he said he still does not know where Khashoggi's body is.

After denying any involvement in the disappearance of Khashoggi, 59, for two weeks, Saudi Arabia on Saturday morning said he had died in a fistfight at the consulate. A member of the team dressed in Khashoggi's clothes to make it appear as if he had left the consulate.

He says of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally: "The Turks have been talking more to the media than they have us".

"Nothing can justify this killing and we condemn it in the strongest possible terms", the three countries said in a joint statement on Sunday.

The Saudi stock market is down about 4 percent since Khashoggi's disappeared.

Global outrage over Khashoggi's October 2 slaying at the hands of Saudi officials, under still-disputed circumstances, has marked the greatest crisis in the 33-year-old's rapid rise, already tarnished by a catastrophic war in Yemen and a sweeping roundup of Saudi businessmen and activists. Asked about allegations that Khashoggi had been tortured and beheaded, he said preliminary results of the investigation did not suggest that.

Why the team had not been required to report the mission's outcome to its superiors remains unclear.

Raab called the case "terrible" but said the government was not ending its relationship with the conservative kingdom, which buys hundreds of millions of pounds in weapons from Britain each year.

"We need them as a counterbalance to Iran", he said.

But any direct challenge to Prince Mohammed's succession "may be destabilizing for the kingdom as a whole", said Cinzia Bianco, a London-based analyst for Gulf State Analytics. It also said 18 people had been arrested as part of the case. They claim to have audio and video evidence of it. "The legal proceedings should be free from the bias of Saudi Arabia's national interests", AJI chairman Abdul Manan told The Jakarta Post on Sunday.

King Salman, his father, appointed him to lead a committee that will restructure the kingdom's intelligence services after Khashoggi's slaying. "We are determined to punish those who are responsible for this murder". South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said: "I find it impossible to believe that the Crown Prince was not involved".

"A crime committed in a consulate can not be carried out without the knowledge of the senior state officials of that country".

"The quality and significance of the relationship we have with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia also rests with the respect we have for the norms and values to which the Saudi authorities and us are jointly committed under worldwide law", they warned.

"This is not just about this journalist being killed", Paul said.

Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told Fox News that the Saudis want to hold to account those responsible in the case regarding the late Jamal Khashoggi.
