  • [World News]Jamal Khashoggi's 'ferocious' murder was planned by Saudi officials days before his death, says Erdogan10/23 14:10

    Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the president of Turkey, said the killing of Jamal Khashoggi was "a political murder" planned in advance by Saudi operatives as he demanded that “the person who gave the order” be held accountable.  In his first major speech since the journalist disappeared, Mr Erdogan said the murder of the Washington Post columnist was pre-meditated and that several members of the so-called hit squad arrived in Istanbul ahead of Mr Khashoggi’s disappearance to scope out a forest.  Mr Erdogan said Turkey would not accept Saudi Arabia’s explanation that the killing was a botched operation carried out by rogue intelligence officials and implied he believed it was ordered by senior leaders. "The information obtained so far and the evidence found shows that Khashoggi was murdered in a ferocious manner," Erdogan told MPs in Ankara.   “Leaving some security and intelligence forces holding the bag will not satisfy us or the international community,” he said. “The human consciousness will not be satisfied until all those - from the person who gave the order to those who carried it out - are brought to account.”  Mr Erdogan said he wanted the 18 Saudi men who have been arrested for the murder to be extradited to Turkey to face charges, a challenge to the Saudi government which has said they will be tried in Saudi courts.   The Turkish president’s speech adds to pressure on Riyadh, which has been facing a wave of international scepticism since it announced over the weekend that Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince, was not involved in the killing.  No mention of Mohammed bin Salman Mr Erdogan made no mention of the crown prince in his speech but said that Saudi Arabia’s own investigation would not be enough.  Nor did he make any reference to the tapes Turkish officials are believed to have of Mr Khashoggi’s torture and killing, which appears to implicate the prince's inner circle. “I don’t doubt the sincerity of King Salman,” he said. “But such a critical investigation should be carried out by a delegation that is fair, truly unbiased and does not even have the slightest suspicion of contact with the incident.”  Mr Erodgan posed a series of questions to the Saudi government, demanding to know where Mr Khashoggi’s body was and to know the name of the “local collaborator” which Saudi Arabia says hid the corpse.  He asked “on whose orders” the team of soldiers, spies and a forensic expert flew into Istanbul and why people with those skill sets had been assembled.  He also demanded to know why Saudi officials had not immediately opened the consulate for inspection, instead stalling for more than a week before allowing a search.     “Until these questions are answered, no one should give the slightest though to this matter being covered up,” he said.  Jeremy Hunt, the foreign secretary, said he was "deeply concerned to hear President Erdogan describe Jamal Khashoggi’s murder as pre-meditated. The world is still waiting for answers." Deeply concerned to hear President Erdogan describe Jamal #Khashoggi’s murder as pre-meditated. The world is still waiting for answers— Jeremy Hunt (@Jeremy_Hunt) October 23, 2018 King Salman and Prince Mohammed met with Khashoggi's family in Riyadh on Tuesday, three weeks after his disappearance. Pictures showed son Salah, who has been under a travel ban since his father left the country last year, shaking hands with the prince.  Jamal Khashoggi's son Salah meets Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman  Credit: SPA 'Davos in the Desert' The timing of the controversy could not be worse for the crown prince. His annual conference, the Future Investment Initiative, kicked off today and was intended to draw leading investors who could help underwrite the heir-apparent's ambitious plans to revamp the economy. But the summit, nicknamed "Davos in the desert", has been overshadowed by growing global outrage. So much so that MBS, as he is nicknamed, decided not to not appear on the opening day.  The chief executive of German industrial conglomerate Siemens, Joe Kaeser, was the latest among dozens of global executives to withdraw from the summit, hosted by the kingdom's sovereign wealth fund. Ministers from the United States, Britain and France, which have huge defence deals at stake with Saudi Arabia, have already pulled out of the summit. Corporate heads, from JP Morgan to carmaker Ford and ride-hailing app Uber, as well as media powerhouses like Bloomberg, CNN and the Financial Times, have all abandoned plans to attend. Organisers have taken down a list of speakers from its website and on Monday refused to confirm the number of attendees. And in a fresh setback, the forum's website went down on Monday after an apparent cyberattack. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. Turkey keeps leaking Meanwhile, Turkish sources have kept up a steady stream of leaks from their investigation into how the journalist died casting further doubt on the Saudi version of events - that Khashoggi died after an argument spiralled into a brawl. Donald Trump said he was "not satisfied" with Riyadh's explanation of the death and world leaders are demanding answers. On Monday, CNN broadcast images showing a Saudi official playing a body double for Khashoggi, wearing the journalist's clothes, exiting the consulate. Omer Celik, spokesman of Mr Erdogan's ruling party, said the killing "was planned in an extremely savage manner," and that "there has been a lot of effort to whitewash this". An Erdogan adviser, Yasin Aktay, wrote in the Yeni Safak daily that Riyadh's version of events "feels like our intelligence is being mocked". The security official heading a team of 15 Saudis allegedly sent to Istanbul, called the head of Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman's office, Bader al-Asaker, "four times after the murder", the adviser added. Abdulkadir Selvi, whose Hurriyet newspaper columns are closely watched for indications of Mr Erdogan's thinking, wrote that Khashoggi was slowly strangled to death before a Saudi forensic specialist cut his body into 15 pieces while listening to music. "We cannot close this file until the crown prince is brought to account and removed from his post," said Selvi. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, a smooth former envoy to Washington, appeared on Fox News on Sunday to blame a "rogue operation" by individuals who "exceeded their responsibilities" and then "tried to cover up for it". On Tuesday he said the killing of a critic like Khashoggi is something that must "never happen again". Saudi Arabia's leadership will "see to it that the investigation is thorough and complete and that the truth is revealed and those responsible will be held to account", he told reporters. "And that mechanism and procedures are put in place to ensure that something like this can never happen again." Jamal Khashoggi death | The unanswered questions What we know The saga surrounding the fate of Saudi Arabia’s best-known journalist has played out in claims and counterclaims published in the world’s media, as both Turkey and Riyadh struggle to control the narrative.  Since news of Mr Khashoggi’s disappearance broke, journalists have had to rely on carefully controlled releases of information from Turkey - a country which has in recent years muzzled its relatively free press - and Saudi Arabia, which never enjoyed one to begin with. The singular fact that both countries can agree on is that Mr Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul at 1.14pm on October 2, leaving his Turkish fiancee Hatice Cengiz waiting outside. Turkey gave Saudi Arabia a day to come up with an explanation, but Riyadh was not forthcoming. The kingdom offered the explanation that the journalist met with officials at the consulate and left shortly after, saying they noted nothing out of the ordinary. Ms Cengiz, who stood by the exit for more than four hours before raising the alarm, said that was impossible. Saudi’s response appeared not to be satisfactory for Turkey either, which was under mounting pressure to investigate an alleged state-ordered assassination on its soil. A series of leaks followed, including CCTV footage of Khashoggi entering the consulate, but not leaving.  Turkish officials alluded to a tape they had which they said revealed that the journalist was tortured and then killed. His body was chopped into pieces and taken out of the embassy. It implicated members of MBS's inner circle.  The kingdom was forced to respond, saying their own investigation found there was a "fistfight" between Khashoggi and some of the Saudi officials who entered the embassy. They were not there at the order of the crown prince and were to be fired and investigated.  Turkish officials have continued to leak damaging information in the hope of forcing Saudi to come clean. The latest of which was CCTV footage which appeared to show one of the 15-an hit squad dressed up as Khashoggi's body double leaving through the back door of the consulate.  Jamal Khashoggi | read more International reaction and diplomatic fallout There is a lot at risk here, with the incident threatening Turkey-Saudi relations, US-Turkey relations and perhaps most importantly Saudi-US relations. Under Erdogan, Ankara has jockeyed for influence in the region over Sunni powerhouse Saudi Arabia. The two have an alliance of convenience in conflicts in Syria and Yemen but the partnership has always been uneasy. Until his speech on Tuesday President Erdogan had been careful to distance himself from the reports, instead preferring to leak damning details to the press through confidantes. The US, a close and strategic ally of the bin Salman family, initially stayed silent as they weighed their response. Mr Trump appeared to open the door for Saudi rulers to distance themselves from the scandal by appearing to place the blame on “rogue assassinations”. Neither country is looking for a high-level diplomatic confrontation and both have strong incentives to agree a version of events that absolves Crown Prince Mohammed. A US-Saudi rift would likely send shockwaves around the world, destabilising oil markets and the global investment climate, not to mention dealing a blow to the Trump administration's own plans in the Middle East. Last week the president despatched Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State, to Riyadh to smooth things over. But Mr Trump’s softly-softly approach has not been well-received at home. Mr Erdogan's address was carefully judged. He appeared transparent in front of the world, but stopped short of laying any blame on Saudi Arabia's heir apparent. By doing so he now has leverage over Saudi, simultaneously buying time for the Trump administration, which does not want to see its ally implicated in the murder. ......Search More News

  • [Top Story]Trump's missile treaty pullout could escalate tension with China10/23 14:10

    U.S. officials have been warning for years that the United States was being put at a disadvantage by China's development of increasingly sophisticated land-based missile forces, which the Pentagon could not match thanks to the U.S. treaty with Russia. President Donald Trump has signaled he may soon give the Pentagon a freer hand to confront those advances, if he makes good on threats to pull out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which required elimination of short- and intermediate-range nuclear and conventional missiles. Dan Blumenthal, a former Pentagon official now at the American Enterprise Institute, said a treaty pullout could pave the way for the United States to field easier-to-hide, road-mobile conventional missiles in places like Guam and Japan.......Search More News
