Saudi journalist 'killed in pre-planned murder at Istanbul consulate'

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has dismissed comments from US President Donald Trump that monarch King Salman would not last "for two weeks" without American military support and shared insights into the kingdom's new timeline to list state oil giant Saudi Aramco.

Khashoggi, who has been missing since he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, had been banned from writing in the pan-Arab Al-Hayat newspaper following his defence of the Muslim Brotherhood, which Riyadh has blacklisted as a terror organisation. It's there since 1744, I believe more than 30 years before the United States of America, And I believe, and I'm sorry if anyone misunderstands that, but I believe President (Barack) Obama, in his eight years, he worked against many of our agenda - not (only) in Saudi Arabia, but also in the Middle East.

"We call on the government of Saudi Arabia to support a thorough investigation of Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance and to be transparent about the results of that investigation", he said. "So Saudi Arabia needs something like around 2000 years to maybe face some dangers". "I can not believe that he has been killed.!" according to the BBC. "I am following the (issue) and we will inform the world whatever the outcome" of the official probe, he said. You might not be there for two weeks without us. "You have to pay for your military", Trump said.

The crown prince denied that the kingdom had halted the plan after a media report said that financial advisors working on it had been disbanded.

But bin Salman downplayed Trump's remarks, saying "you have to accept that any friend will say good things and bad things".

"You will have some misunderstandings".

"We would not put, as PIF, another US$45 billion if we didn't see huge income in the first year with the first US$45 billion".

Fulham are off to their worst start to a top-flight season with one win in eight games following last season's promotion. We need to feel together with, the supporters and the players. "I think we played very well", he told BT Sport .

"It's not free armament".

But what's important in the prince's interview is that he put the dispute in its normal size and emphasized that for Saudi Arabia, the relation with the U.S. "especially" during Trump's era is serious and there's no room for emotional outbursts.

The prominent rights group also took global community to task for its "deafening silence on Saudi Arabia's crackdown on freedom of expression", adding that the worldwide community must demand an immediate explanation from Saudi Arabia's authorities about Jamal Khashoggi's fate or whereabouts.

Speaking at an event in Riyadh a year ago, Son said that investments made by the first Vision Fund were already paying off.

"Saudi Arabia ranked as one of the world's most censored countries". "It has been conveyed to him that we expect full coordination in the investigation process", the ministry said. Prince Mohammed said he hoped to raise a record $100 billion by selling a 5 percent stake, dwarfing the previous record, set in 2014, when Chinese retailer Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. raised $25 billion.

Yet a coalition of producers from OPEC and beyond has recently boosted output by 1.5-M BPD, 2X the 700,000-bbl decline suffered so far by Iran, according to the Crown Prince. "More than that, all these issues we look at them seriously and we're trying to be sure that no one is harmed as much as we can".
