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

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

He warned that "we are not going to put up with these terrible prices much longer".

"The Trump administration's loyalty to Saudi Arabia & MBS - given the horrors in Yemen, this & more - is a travesty", she wrote.

On Saturday, Trump said at a rally in West Virginia that although the Saudis had got trillions of dollars, "we don't get what we should be getting from them". "But I said "King - we're protecting you - you might not be there for two weeks without us", Trump said. "You have to pay for your military, you have to pay'".

It's a theme he's been sounding for years, tweeting in March 2015 that if Saudi Arabia "wants our help and protection, they must pay dearly!"

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Monday (Oct 8) called on Riyadh to prove its claim that Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who has been missing since last week, left the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, while the Washington called on Saudi Arabia to support an investigation into his disappearance.

The Crown Prince said his country will privatize more than 20 companies in 2019, helping the government's strategy of diversifying away from oil exports.

"We export as much as two barrels for any barrel that disappeared from Iran recently", Prince Mohammed said.

In a discussion regarding the timing of the IPO, Mohammed bin Salman was quoted saying that he believes it will release by late 2020 or early 2021 and the price will be decided by the investors on the day.

"Saudi Arabia was there before the United States of America".

Florida, Alabama bracing for 'monstrous' Hurricane Michael
Hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 35 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds were outward up to 185 miles. The storm is expected to cause wide-spread power outages, high winds and heavy rain in Alabama.


Asked why his reaction to Canada differed, the crown prince said the Canadians sought to impose their will on Saudi Arabia and infringe on its sovereignty.

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, calling US lenience on Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman a "catastrophe", said the Trump administration should cut off arms sales to the kingdom.

In an interview with Bloomberg News, Crown Prince Mohammed detailed that he would channel the proceeds from a stake sale of Saudi Basic Industries Corp (SABIC) and an IPO of state-owned Saudi Aramco to a $100 billion SoftBank fund, which could be launched next year.

He stressed that Saudi-U.S. relations were good, saying "If you look at the picture overall, you have 99 percent of good things and one bad issue". Journalists and authorities alike in the USA have spoken against Saudi actions. At the same time, the relationship places pressure on the king to boost oil supplies.

Saudi officials have strongly denied playing a role in the disappearance.

Saudi King Salman made a four-day trip to Moscow in March 2017. "His is a voice of reasoned criticism and wise comment that the Saudi crown prince should listen to". All those issues have been viewed as being pushed by Prince Mohammed, who similarly has led roundups of activists, businessmen and others in the kingdom.

A former government adviser who has been critical of some policies of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Riyadh's intervention in the war in Yemen, Khashoggi has lived in self-imposed exile in the United States since a year ago to avoid possible arrest.

He further said, "So, you can not have 100 percent friends saying good things about you, even in your family".
