U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made an emergency trip to Riyadh this week to discuss Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, who is believed to be dead at the hands of Saudi officials. Add Jamal Khashoggi as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Jamal Khashoggi news, video, and analysis from ABC News.
Saudi officials say Khashoggi left the consulate shortly after entering but CCTV suggests otherwise.
Security assistance and arms sales can only resume, the bill says, if the secretary of state "determines and certifies" that the Saudi government did not carry out or order the kidnapping and/or death of Khashoggi.
"Do this outside. You will put me in trouble", Mr.al-Otaibi told them, according to the Turkish official and a report in the Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak, both citing audio recordings said to have been obtained by Turkish intelligence.
The president said that his own comment Monday about possible "rogue killers" behind Khashoggi's disappearance was informed by his "feeling" from his conversation with Salman, and that the King did not use the term.
According to senior officials who spoke to the Times, Kushner has made the case that worldwide outrage over Khashoggi's is bound to fade-much like it did after previous "errors" committed by the Saudi regime. "They also indicated they would get this done quickly", said Pompeo.
When questioned on what he would do if the Saudi investigation showed that Saudi leaders King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman were responsible, Trump told Fox Business in an earlier interview, "Well, I hope we're going to be on the better side of the equation".
"I think we have to find out what happened first", Trump told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
Mr Cavusoglu said his meeting with Mr Pompeo had been a "beneficial and fruitful" encounter.

Many left spontaneously with little more than the clothes on their backs and what they could quickly throw into backpacks. Mexico is seeking global aid as the country prepares for the arrival of thousands of migrants.
"He said: 'Are you kidding?" Trump has resisted any action, pointing to huge US weapons deals pending with Saudi Arabia and saying that sanctions could end up hurting the American economy.
But Pompeo declared he did not want "to talk about any of the facts", while President Donald Trump said innocence must be presumed, drawing a parallel with his US Supreme Court judge nominee who faced sexual assault accusations.
As Saudi Arabia's green national flag flapped overhead, forensics teams entered the residence, located slightly more than a mile from the consulate where Khashoggi vanished October 2 while trying to pick up paperwork to get married.
"I know the bloom is off the rose with the crown prince", Giuliani said.
Police plan to search the Saudi Consul General's home, as well as some of the country's diplomatic vehicles, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said.
Trump said he planned to see Pompeo either Wednesday night or Thursday morning to get a readout of his meetings with the Saudis and Turks.
Despite that, Pompeo reported that President Erdogan felt the Saudis have been cooperative, and the two countries will share information.
