Turkey To Reveal Details Of Probe Into Khashoggi's Killing

Erdogan has remained largely silent on the case, although Turkey's pro-government newspapers have released information detailing a 15-member team that purportedly arrived in Istanbul to confront Khashoggi at the consulate.

Meanwhile, the deputy head of Turkey's ruling party said his country would "never allow a cover-up" over the killing of Mr Khashoggi.

Adel al-Jubeir said that those responsible will be held accountable for "this huge and grave mistake". "I am going to go there and meet with my counterparts and continue to focus on what's in the Treasury's domain, as it relates to this issue".

On the same day, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he would make public on October 23 the "naked truth" about the killing of the dissident, who was last seen entering the consulate on October 2.

She also reiterated the federal government's call for a thorough investigation in collaboration with Turkish officials. Saudi authorities said they had fired five top officials and arrested 18 other Saudi nationals as a result of the preliminary investigation.

Saudi critic Jamal Khashoggi criticised Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's "authoritarian rule" shortly before his death, in an interview published following confirmation he died at the kingdom's Istanbul consulate.

Saudi Arabia is the UK's key ally in the region and a significant trading partner - with Britain also rolling out the red carpet for Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

"I'm not calling for the overthrow of the regime", the one-time royal insider said. "That is not the focus of my trip".

After 18 days in which Saudi Arabia adamantly denied that any harm had come to Jamal Khashoggi at its consulate in Istanbul, it committed a startling about-face.

"The market started to price in a fundamentally different relationship between Saudi Arabia and the USA", said Jaap Meijer, head of equity research, at Arqaam Capital.

He said in Arizona that he would work with Congress on next moves, but "I would prefer that we don't use as retribution cancelling $110 billion worth of work, which means 600,000 jobs. we need them as a counterbalance to Iran".

Worldwide outrage over Khashoggi's October 2 slaying at the hands of Saudi officials, under still-disputed circumstances, has marked the greatest crisis in the 33-year-old's rapid rise, already tarnished by a catastrophic war in Yemen and a sweeping roundup of Saudi businessmen and activists. "It would be very foolish of Saudi Arabia to forfeit the trust of the oil market earned over decades by injecting politics into their oil policy".

After speaking with Saudi Arabia's King Salman, President Trump suggested that Khashoggi was targeted by "rogue killers". The Saudi statements on Saturday did not address what happened to the body. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) labeled the Saudi account "insulting", arguing no one "analyzing this with any type of intelligent background" would believe "a fist fight led to a dismemberment with a bone saw".
