He also said the United States had not informed Turkey of an audio recording regarding Khashoggi's killing, a day after a Turkish newspaper said that the Central Intelligence Agency had signaled to Turkey it had a recording in which the crown prince ordered to "silence Khashoggi".
Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan could meet with Prince Mohammed on the sidelines of the G20 summit, according to a Turkish presidential spokesman. Trump stated that the said document did not "conclude" that fact, but merely had "feelings" for it. The two crown princes- who also command their countries' armed forces- are known to be close, with the more experienced Abu Dhabi crown prince reportedly offering his insights to the 33-year-old Saudi prince on past occasions.
Sabah newspaper reported Khashoggi was first strangled using a bag over his head before Salah Muhammed Al-Tubaigy, a lieutenant-colonel in the Saudi forensic department, drained his blood in the bathtub before dismembering him.
Prince Mohammed is scheduled to visit Bahrain and Egypt next on his tour.
Khashoggi, a Saudi-born, US-based journalist for the Post who had been critical of Saudi leaders, was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October. Khashoggi's body was dismembered, and his remains have yet to be found.
"King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman vigorously deny any knowledge of the planning or execution of the murder of Mr. Khashoggi", Trump wrote.Читайте также: Unai Emery claims Arsenal lacked 'defensive structure' under Arsene Wenger
The committee will investigate the United States intelligence assessment of Khashoggi's death as well as the war in Yemen, the stability of the Saudi royal family and the kingdom's treatment of critics and the press, the California representative Adam Schiff told the Washington Post.
The U.S Bureau of Economic Analysis does not report figures for Saudi Arabia's direct investment in the U.S.to avoid revealing information about specific companies.
Meanwhile, France has announced that it is imposing sanctions on 18 Saudi nationals - the same individuals targeted with sanctions by the US, UK and Germany - allegedly linked to the Khashoggi murder.
American intelligence agencies have concluded that the crown prince ordered the killing in the Saudi Consulate in Turkey, according to a USA official familiar with the assessment.
"We still see them (Saudis and Emiratis) continuing with the same behavior, continuing not to be responsive to any attempt of the global community" to end the conflict, he said. It would be the first official contact between the prince and Erdogan.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
