Turkey, Saudi Arabia discuss missing journalist case

World War 3: Donald Trump vows ‘severe punishment’ if Saudi Arabia murdered journalist

Also, anti-Saudi sentiment in the US Congress could conceivably raise pressure to pass the so-called No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act, which would end sovereign immunity shielding OPEC members from US legal action.

"We encourage joint Saudi-Turkish efforts in that regard, and expect the Saudi government to provide a complete and detailed response", they added.

"So, we do that, we really are hurting our country a lot more than we're hurting Saudi Arabia". "I don't think any of our government officials should be going and pretending it's business as usual until we know what's happening".

"If the price of oil reaching $80 angered President Trump, no one should rule out the price jumping to $100, or $200, or even double that figure", Turki Aldakhil wrote. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

Trump has vowed "severe punishment" should Saudi Arabia be linked to the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, who hasn't been seen since he entered the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to obtain a document for his upcoming wedding.

Larry Kudlow, director of the White House National Economic Council, said Sunday that Mr. Mnuchin still plans to attend the conference, which he described as a meeting on stopping terrorist financing. Most global media partners have pulled their sponsorships.

Saudi Arabia rejected threats of punishment, saying the kingdom would retaliate against any sanctions with "greater action", according to its official state news agency. US markets have been rattled by rising interest rates, signs of a slowdown in the global economy and the U.S.

However, Turkish officials said Sunday that Saudi Arabia appears to be using delay tactics and is interested only in presenting a facade of cooperation.

Prince Mansour also highlighted his concerns regarding the uncanny endeavors by some parties, entities and countries well known to the world for their support of terrorism and hostility towards Saudi Arabia.

Salah Shamma, of Franklin Templeton Emerging Markets Equity, told Reuters: "The market is reacting negatively to sentiment around the Khashoggi case". The index recovered some ground later to close 3.5% down.

The White House is brushing aside threats by Saudi Arabia that it may economically retaliate for any USA punitive action imposed over the suspected killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, pledging a "swift, open, transparent investigation" into his disappearance.

'In this spirit, light must be shed on the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, whose family has lost contact with him since October 2. Footage emerged Tuesday showing Khashoggi entering the building the week before.

Turkish authorities believe Khashoggi was killed inside the mission by a Saudi state hit-squad, charges that Saudi authorities have consistently denied.
