"There's something really bad and disgusting about that, if that was the case, so we're going to have to see", Trump said.

Flake said if the Saudis did, in fact, kill Khashoggi, Congress might specifically curtail US military aid to Saudi-led forces in Yemen.

The Saudi Press Agency yesterday cited an official source as saying that "The kingdom affirms its total rejection of any threats and attempts to undermine it, whether by threatening to impose economic sanctions, using political pressures, or repeating false accusations that will not undermine the Kingdom and its staunch positions and Arab, Islamic and worldwide status, the outcome of these weak endeavors, like their predecessors, is a demise".

Earlier, US President Donald Trump threatened "severe punishment" if it is determined that Saudi Arabia is behind the journalist's disappearance. Even just hinting that it won't replace the barrels lost from Iran due to USA sanctions could be enough to push prices toward US$100 a barrel.

Khashoggi, who had lived in self-imposed exile in the United States for the past year, had written columns in The Washington Post criticizing the Saudi leadership.

Fears are growing over the fate of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi after Turkish officials said they believe he was murdered inside the Saudi consulate. "This has raised concerns that the Saudis may use oil as a tool for retaliation if any sanctions or other action is taken against it", Patterson said.

Rebutting allegations by some others, Akbar said: "Another accusation was made repeatedly by Ghazala Wahab , in an effort to damage my reputation".

Asked whether he had reviewed the audio or video recordings, Trump said he has not. Khashoggi was seen going into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul almost two weeks ago; he never exited the building.

Trump added: "There's a lot at stake. We do want to see it". "We're going to get to the bottom of it, and there will be severe punishment" if the Turkish claims are true.

Trump said that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was on his way to Saudi Arabia within the hour to discuss the controversy over journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a contributor to The Washington Post and critic of powerful Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. "They are looking into whether the body of Khashoggi was dissolved using acid", she said. The President said that Cengiz wrote "a handsome letter" to him and first lady Melania Trump and that they would welcome her.

Mohammed Zidan, market strategist at Thinkmarket in Dubai, said the drop in Saudi stocks was linked to the uncertainty surrounding the Khashoggi affair. "I think we would've known by now". "It sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers".

Few details have emerged over how the joint working group will function, sparking suspicion that Saudi Arabia might be trying to coax Turkey with certain concessions at a time of the latter's economic problems.

The Saudi Government issued a statement condemning and denouncing "the false accusations circulated in media reports on the Saudi Government and other people in the purported relation to the disappearance" of Khashoggi. He plans a swing through Montana, Arizona and Nevada this week.
