Turkey wants 18 Saudis extradited over Khashoggi murder

Jamal Khashoggi: Turkey demands Saudi Arabia reveals whereabouts of journalist's body

Khashoggi had gone to the consulate for paperwork related to his planned marriage to Cengiz.

President Vladimir Putin spoke to Saudi King Salman on Thursday, and Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters Friday that the Kremlin accepts the royal family's denial of any role in Khashoggi's killing.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman then denounced the "heinous crime", and the nation's public prosecutor then conceded the murder was "premeditated".

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Saturday that the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi undermined Middle Eastern stability and that Washington would take additional measures against those responsible.

It's reported that evidence links the killing directly to the Crown Prince's office, a charge Riyadh denies. "One is a (Iranian) vision of darkness which seeks to spread sectarianism throughout the region", Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir told a security summit in Bahrain.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday brushed off pressure to halt lucrative arms sales to Saudi Arabia over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, saying such calls were "pure demagoguery".

Despite demands from various groups, President Trump has refused to tear up an arms agreement between Saudi Arabia and the United States.

His death has angered the global community and Turkish authorities are leading an investigation to find out exactly what happened to the 59-year-old who was an eminent critic of the Saudi regime.

Mattis' comments at an worldwide conference in the Middle East didn't directly say Saudi Arabia was the perpetrator of the brutal slaying or refer to the calls from US lawmakers to cut arms sales to the kingdom.

Saudi Arabia's slow shift to reveal more details about the killing also reflects the kingdom's acknowledgement that the killing could have a serious diplomatic, and possibly economic impact.

"It is clear that the judicial system in Turkey is better equipped to genuinely serve the cause of justice in this case", a senior Turkish official said, because Khashoggi was "murdered in Turkey by Saudi nationals who travelled to Turkey for this specific objective".

It has been a whirlwind for Osaka since her stunning victory over Serena Williams at Flushing Meadows in September. The 2017 victor defeated the fellow debutant 7-5 4-6 6-1 in two hours and 24 minutes in Singapore .

Last week, Mr Trump toughened his stance on Saudi Arabia and described the killing and subsequent changing narratives from Riyadh as part of "the worst cover-up in the history of cover-ups".

The GCC "will remain the most important institution for the Gulf States", he said, underlining keenness to spare the GCC the impact of differences among members, particularly in the military side.

Pro-government Turkish media said that intelligence officers showed Haspel video images and audio tapes of Khashoggi's killing gathered from the consulate.

Sanctions should come as "a European response" and be "clear and coherent.in all domains", the French leader said.

In response to the killing, Pompeo this week announced moves against 21 Saudis to either revoke their visas or make them ineligible for United States visas after the Khashoggi killing.
