Trump Vows ‘Severe Punishment’ Over Khashoggi Disappearance in ’60 Minutes’ Interview

Sir Richard Branson has suspended ties with Saudi Arabia

Turkish officials say they fear a team of Saudi agents killed and dismembered Khashoggi, and they have released surveillance footage of the alleged perpetrators and mysterious movements outside the consulate on October 2, the day he entered.

Turkish officials have released footage of a squad of Saudi men arriving in Istanbul the day Jamal Khashoggi vanished.

Mr Trump has said his administration won a $110 billion military order from Saudi Arabia and that the deal, combined with Saudi commitments to invest heavily in the United States, was worth hundreds of thousands of U.S. jobs. "Investors do not feel solid in Saudi yet, so it's easy for them to take back their funds".

US President Donald Trump said he would "punish" Saudi Arabia if it were found responsible for killing him.

"I don't like the concept of stopping an investment of $110 billion into the United States because. they're going to take that money and spend it in Russian Federation or China", Trump said, referring to a USA arms deal with Saudi Arabia.

"If they don't buy it from us, they're going to buy it from Russian Federation or they're going to buy it from China", he said.

Former foreign secretary Malcolm Rifkind called on Britain to impose sanctions on Saudi Arabia.

However, Trump in the same interview said: "As of this moment, they deny it and they deny it vehemently".

A Saudi national and legal resident of the United States, Khashoggi disappeared after he was seen entering the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul.

The kingdom will respond to any measure against it with bigger measures, the source said, adding: "The Saudi economy has vital and influential roles for the global economy".

The statement did not elaborate.

The Crown Prince has launched a series of social reforms in Saudi Arabia, including allowing women to drive.

Witt pointed out that Trump also has a personal interest in Saudi Arabia.

"If the price of oil reaching $80 angered President Trump, no one should rule out the price jumping to $100, or $200, or even double that figure", Turki Aldakhil wrote.

This image taken from surveillance camera shows a still image of people inside Ataturk International Airport, Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2, 2018. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.

Khashoggi's disappearance has already led to many media organizations withdrawing from an upcoming high-profile investment conference in Riyadh, including CNN, CNBC, The New York Times, and The Financial Times.

Sir Richard Branson, the British billionaire who founded the Virgin Group, has suspended his position as director of two tourism projects in Saudi Arabia as well as his company's discussions over investment in two space projects.

The Saudis have come under considerable worldwide pressure over the disappearance.
