Post prints empty column for Saudi writer missing in Turkey

Post prints empty column for Saudi writer missing in Turkey

Khashoggi, who once acted as an adviser to the Saudi royal family, fled Saudi Arabia previous year amid a crackdown on the kingdom's intellectuals and journalists.

Prince Mohammed also said he hoped to resume oil production from the Neutral Zone, which Saudi Arabia shares with Kuwait, after resolving pending issues between the two Gulf OPEC allies.

He continued that Saudi Arabia needs something like around 2,000 years to maybe face some dangers while watering down the comments made by Trump.

The crown prince insisted that the kingdom has always paid for armaments from the US.

"The burden of proof is on Saudi Arabia to produce evidence for its claim that Khashoggi left the consulate alone, and that Saudi agents have not detained him", said Middle East director Sarah Leah Whitson.

That the Saudi authorities would potentially risk detaining Khashoggi at a consulate in a country with which ties are already tenuous signals just how important Khashoggi is to Riyadh.

Washington Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt said the newspaper had reached out to "anyone we think might be able to help locate him and assure his safety", including US, Turkish and Saudi officials.

On Tuesday, Khashoggi entered the consulate to get paperwork he needed in order to be married next week, said his fiancée Hatice, who gave only her first name for fear of retribution.

Republicans’ prosecutor for Kavanaugh hearing says she wouldn’t lay criminal charges
But Kavanaugh's testimony last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee was not an act of intimidation or manipulation. With a 51-seat majority, Republicans can only lose one vote - if all Democrats vote no on Kavanaugh.

'Ever since the relationship started between Saudi Arabia and the United States of America, we've bought everything with money, ' the 32-year-old prince told Bloomberg in an interview, saying he loves to work with the usa leader.

'I love working with Trump.

"If he's in Saudi Arabia, I would know that", he added.

The State Department said it was aware of Khashoggi's disappearance and was seeking more information. All public protests are banned in the kingdom, as are political parties. In the early 1990s, he tried to persuade bin Laden to reconcile with the Saudi royal family and return home from his base in Sudan, but the al-Qaida leader refused. Saudi Arabia is a large country with particular significance for the Islamic world.

He is one of the most prominent critics of the crown prince, who has unveiled reforms praised by the West while carrying out an apparent crackdown on dissent, which has seen human and women's rights activists, intellectuals and clerics arrested, and waging a war in Yemen that has triggered a humanitarian crisis.

The BBC's Mark Lowen says the mystery threatens to deepen the strains in the relationship between Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

As others have noted, this incident will likely heighten existing tensions between Saudi Arabia and Turkey that have been reawakened in light of the GCC rift, in which Turkey has decidedly sided with Qatar, ramping up trade relations and enhancing military ties with the blockaded state.
