Jamal Khashoggi: Saudi Arabia rejects Trump's 'threats' over missing journalist

He said that, once it was clear what had happened to Mr Khashoggi, governments should decide "in the appropriate way" whether to attend an investment conference to be held in the Saudi capital Riyadh this month.

Khashoggi was living in self-imposed exile in the United States and had criticized Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in columns written for The Washington Post.

He said Saudi Arabia, which has a leading position in the Arab and Islamic worlds, has played a prominent role throughout history in achieving the security, stability and prosperity of the region and the world.

Sanders has criticized USA support for the Saudi-led coalition's military effort in Yemen and pushed for a vote earlier this year along with Utah Republican Sen.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor and USA permanent resident whose writings have been critical of powerful Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has been missing since entering the country's consulate in Istanbul on Oct 2.

However, Trump said he did not want to block military sales to Saudi Arabia, one option that has rattled United States defence contractors, saying "there are other ways of punishing".

Prince Abdulaziz noted that Saudi Arabia and Turkey have agree to conduct a joint investigation and it is important for the media to report only the facts and "not to affect the paths of investigation and judicial proceedings".

His comments come days after Saudi Arabia said it would open its consulate for a search but that is yet to happen.

"Had I known it would be the last time I would see Jamal, I would have rather entered the Saudi consulate myself", she added.

A delegation from Saudi Arabia arrived in Turkey on Friday as part of an investigation into the writer's disappearance.

President Donald Trump says Saudi leaders, as of now, "deny it every way you can imagine" allegations that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered by the kingdom.

Britain, France and Germany told Saudi Arabia they were treating the case with "the utmost seriousness".

Almost two weeks since Jamal Khashoggi vanished in Istanbul, the shadow of the Saudi journalist's disappearance continues to loom ever larger. "He said, 'See you later my darling, ' and went in", she said.

Trump isn't saying what that could be, but says he doesn't want to cut off American military sales to Saudi Arabia.

Turkish authorities recovered the audio from Khashoggi's iPhone and his iCloud account, the newspaper said.

Sabah also reported that investigation units were now examining all cell phone and landline records from the consulate and the consul general's residence on 2 October.

The promotion made a statement last Thursday announcing that they are "monitoring the situation" in the wake of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance.

The US has been under increasing pressure to demand answers from Saudi Arabia, a long-time US ally in the Middle East, as to Khashoggi's disappearance.

However, the de-facto Saudi ruler's regime has also been linked to the suspected killing of the government critic at the consulate in Istanbul on Tuesday.

Turkey's government believes he was murdered inside the building and his body removed.
