Saudi Crown Prince Calls Journalist's Killing 'Repulsive,' Vows Justice

The event is at the Ritz Cartlton hotel in Saudi capital Riyadh

An activist holds an image of missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi during a demonstration calling for sanctions against Saudi Arabia and to protest Khashoggi's disappearance, outside the White House in Washington, U.S., October 19, 2018.

"The incident that happened is very painful, for all Saudis".

Saudi Arabia has said that 18 people had been arrested in connection with the incident.

"Justice will prevail" in the death of Jamal Khashoggi and no one will be allowed to drive a wedge between Saudi Arabia and Turkey, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman pledged on Wednesday.

Striking a defiant tone, Prince Mohammed told global investors at a major conference in Riyadh that the furor over Khashoggi's killing at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul would not derail the kingdom's reform drive. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had discussed the case of Khashoggi's son, Salah Khashoggi, during his recent visit to the kingdom, making it "clear to Saudi leaders" that Washington wanted the son to return to the United States.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said all culprits would be punished, and that Saudi and Turkey would work together 'to reach results'.

In addition to the recall, Petricek demanded a "transparent investigation" into Khashoggi's tragic death, adding that he now expected a debate among fellow European Union member states on what restrictions could be placed on Saudi Arabia, including a block on the export of military materials.

French President Emmanuel Macron told King Salman in a phone call on Wednesday that Paris, in coordination with partners, could take action against those held responsible for the murder, the Elysee palace said.

Saudi operative wore Khashoggi’s clothes, acted as decoy to fool Turkish police
Saudi Arabia said on Saturday that Khashoggi was involved in "a physical confrontation, which resulted in his death". He said on Sunday he would speak to Saudi crown prince Mohammad bin Salman "very soon" before deciding what to do.

The 57-year-old was last seen entering the Saudi Arabia consulate in Istanbul early October.

"Well, the prince is running things over there more so at this stage".

Ahead of his speech, Mohammed bin Salman spoke with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on steps to "shed light" on Khashoggi's murder, in their first telephone conversation since the killing, a presidential source said. "He's running things and so if anybody were going to be, it would be him", Trump said.

For their part, the Trump administration and the USA defence industry are scrambling to save the few actual deals in a much-touted $110 billion arms package for Saudi Arabia.

On Thursday, Prince Mohammed attended the first meeting of a committee aiming to restructure the kingdom's intelligence services after the killing of Khashoggi, the state-run Saudi Press Agency said.

"Prime Minister Saad is staying in the kingdom for two days, so I hope you don't spread rumours that he was kidnapped", he said during a panel discussion at the event.

As the shocking revelations mount, Turkey is pushing Saudi Arabia for more detail.
