Turkey to search Saudi consulate Monday: diplomatic source

These developments indicate that the USA may not even have to slap Saudi Arabia with sanctions at the government level, as the private sector appears to be more concerned over Khashoggi's mysterious disappearance than the Trump administration itself. The program takes guests on excursions with Times correspondents and other experts.

Khashoggi, a journalist and regular columnist for the Washington Post, failed to emerge after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. "All affected passengers will have their tour costs refunded in full".

Both Ford and JP Morgan expressed their concerns that the recent statements from US President Donald Trump and several US senators could disrupt economic ties between the US and Saudi Arabia.

Turkish officials had previously said the Saudis were resisting a search of the consulate after learning that police meant to use Luminol, a forensic chemical which reveals bloodstains, even if they had been wiped clean.

On October 2, Khashoggi went to the Saudi consulate with his fiancée to get documents proving his divorce. The team arrived by unmarked police cars at the consulate and said nothing to journalists waiting outside as they entered the building.

A team of investigators entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Monday for what Turkish officials called a joint inspection of the building where Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi disappeared almost two weeks ago.

According to a Turkish presidential source, who asked not to be named, Erdogan and the king discussed "the issue of shedding light on the case of Jamal Khashoggi" and also emphasised the "importance of creating a joint working group within the framework of the investigation".

President Trump last week mentioned the "severe punishment" option during an interview with "60 Minutes" and the statement apparently came in response to it.

Investors have taken fright, prompting Saudi stocks to tumble by around seven percent at one point on Sunday, wiping out their gains for 2018.

The Saudi government has described the allegations as "baseless", but have offered no evidence that Mr Khashoggi left the consulate.

"He's staked his entire reputation on being able to be the one person in Saudi Arabia who can transform the Kingdom economically".

President Donald Trump said Monday that he is sending Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to meet with Saudi King Salman amid the mounting global backlash over missing Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

Trump has said he does not want to halt a proposed $110-billion United States arms sale to Saudi Arabia because, he maintained, it would harm USA manufacturers. They include the CEO of Uber, a company in which Saudi Arabia has invested billions of dollars; billionaire Richard Branson; JPMorgan Chase & Co. Prince Mohammed told Reuters previous year that Blackstone and BlackRock Inc were planning to open offices in the kingdom.

In the past days, a slew of business leaders announced they would not attend the second Future Investment Initiative. "And incidentally in this whole case of Khashoggi, [Turkish President Recep] Erdogan doesn't come into this case with what we used to say 'clean hands.' He has a bad human rights record".

Khashoggi was a critic of the regime in effect led by the Bin Salman since his father appointed him crown prince in June 2017.
