USA weeks away from responding to Khashoggi murder: Pompeo

The meetings came shortly after The Washington Post revealed in a report earlier in the day that Netanyahu has asked US President Donald Trump to continue supporting MBS despite accusations that he ordered a hit job on anti-Riyadh journalist Jamal Khashoggi last month. After weeks of denying involvement, the Kingdom admitted he had been killed at the consulate and that it was premeditated.

Also on Thursday, the United States said Saudi Arabia should return Khashoggi's remains to his family for burial "as soon as possible", US State Department spokesman Robert Palladino told reporters.

Khashoggi, a United States resident and columnist for The Washington Post, was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

LONDON-A month after the killing of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi, the Trump administration has chose to stand by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, having concluded that he is nearly certain to retain his grip on power despite a growing global consensus that he bears responsibility for the killing, officials familiar with the deliberations said.

"We have requested information from Saudi officials regarding the whereabouts of Jamal Khashoggi's body and the identity of the supposed local collaborator". Imagine what would happen if Saudi Arabia were destabilized.

Khashoggi, who lived in the United States and wrote columns for the Washington Post, went to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to collect some documents, but he never reappeared.

The Crown Prince urged the advisors to preserve the US-Saudi alliance and claimed the journalist was a member of the Sunni Islamist organisation the Muslim Brotherhood, according to the Washington Post.

"We made a commitment of holding accountable all those responsible for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi", the U.S. chief diplomat noted in a separate WIBK radio interview.

The journalist's family told the Post in response: "Jamal Khashoggi was not a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. To claim otherwise would be ridiculous", the statement said.

"We don't know where the body is", he said.

Slows Slightly During Third Quarter
There's mounting anecdotal evidence that President Donald Trump's trade war is causing trouble for the USA economy and businesses. During the past four quarters, the GDP has risen 3 cent, well above the 2.3 per cent growth during the year-earlier period.

Turkey complies with any "foreign interventions" on its major issues, the main opposition party leader said, suggesting that Ankara allowed the murderers of the Saudi journalist to leave Turkey after a phone call between Saudi King Salman and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Khashoggi entered the consulate last month to get a document he needed to marry his Turkish fiancee.

On Wednesday Turkey said he was strangled immediately after entering the consulate and his body dismembered "in accordance with plans made in advance".

"Jamal Khashoggi was not a unsafe person in any way possible".
