Abbas also expressed his absolute confidence in the Kingdom, under the leadership of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, stressing that Palestine was and will remain with Saudi Arabia, in a statement issued by the Palestinian News Agency.
Turkish officials are not commenting on reports that the government has told USA officials it has audio and video proof that Khashoggi was killed in the consulate.
Saudi officials have denied any involvement in Khashoggi’s disappearance and said he departed the consulate shortly after entering. “We look forward to getting results of this investigation”.
“Had I known it would be the last time I would see Jamal, I would have rather entered the Saudi consulate myself”, she added.
Prince Mohammed has aggressively pitched the kingdom as a destination for foreign investment.
Khashoggi maintained ties with Saudi elites and was viewed as a link between the West and the often opaque royal court.
Later at the White House, he reiterated that there would be “powerful consequences” for Saudi Arabia.
Ms Cengiz, a doctoral student in Istanbul, said she was still hoping Khashoggi was alive.
A woman who identified herself as Hatice A., the Turkish fiancee of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, walks outside the Saudi Arabia consulate in Istanbul on October 3, 2018.
“We will take stern action with the Saudis if necessary, ” he said.
Quoting an official source, SPA reported that Saudi Arabia would retaliate and respond to any measure against it with bigger measures.
Meanwhile, local reports have claimed that authorities have an audio recording of Khashoggi’s murder.
But there’s been no official reaction from any Arab government, and no condemnation from the Arab media. Turkish officials told The Associated Press one of those men was an “autopsy expert”. They’ve also alleged that they have video of the slaying, but not explained how they have it.
There have been claims the reporter managed to use his Apple Watch to record audio evidence of his own torture and murder.
However unlike iPhones, Apple watches do not have a fingerprint ID unlock function.
Soon, Turkey began leaking its suspicions to the media.
Speaking on NBC-TV’s Meet The Press, Brennan – a one-time station chief in Saudi Arabia for the Central Intelligence Agency – was responding to a question from show host Chuck Todd, who asked whether “you put MBS in the same column as Putin and Kim Jong Un?”
The statement came hours after Saudi Arabia’s state-run Saudi Press Agency hit back at the growing chorus of global voices threatening punishment if the Saudi state is found with blood on its hands.
In a sign of the global concern, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said he wanted to know the truth about what happened and expressed fears such disappearances would happen more regularly and become a “new normal”. The president has said that.
A Saudi team has arrived in Turkey to investigate Khashoggi’s disappearance. Meanwhile, Turkey has said it will search the Saudi Consulate for evidence, but that has yet to happen.
A joint statement by the three foreign ministers called for a credible investigation to establish the truth about what happened and ensure those responsible for Mr Khashoggi’s disappearance were held to account. The information circulating within decision-making circles within the kingdom have gone beyond the rosy language used in the statement and discuss more than 30 potential measures to be taken against the imposition of sanctions on Riyadh.
