Saudi crown prince begins second leg of Arab tour

Saudi crown prince begins second leg of Arab tour

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, speaks with reporters after a news conference in Washington, July 17, 2018.

The NGO says it filed a submission with an Argentina federal prosecutor highlighting its findings on alleged war crimes in Yemen.

One bipartisan proposal in the Senate calls to impose additional sanctions on Saudi Arabia and others thought to be fomenting unrest in Yemen and to stop the sale and transfer of all weapons to Saudi Arabia until the Yemen campaign is scaled back.

"The United States intends to remain a steadfast partner of Saudi Arabia to ensure the interests of our country, Israel and all other partners in the region", the president added, noting Saudi investments in USA military equipment and other contracts.

"If they (Turkey) are bugging Saudi Arabia, then what have they been doing to us?"

Dozens of Tunisian rights activists and journalists staged a small protest in the capital Tunis on Monday against Prince Mohammed's planned visit over the Khashoggi killing.

Intelligence officials have said the CIA presented the President with a confidence-based assessment given the facts of the situation.

In a previous statement, Graham also said that the Crown Prince is "toxic" to U.S. - Saudi relations.

The Saudi journalist, who was a USA resident and contributor to The Post, was killed and allegedly dismembered with a bonesaw by a team of Saudi agents after he entered the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul.

Ernst also said she'd "tend to be with my colleagues" in demanding congressional action against the Saudis. But he rejected calls by many in Congress, including members of his own party, for a tougher response, and also dismissed reports from United States intelligence agencies that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman must have at least known about such an audacious and intricate plot. Trump has brushed aside assessments by USA intelligence and other experts that the crown prince must have been involved in the high-level operation, and said he would maintain close relations with Saudi Arabia in part because of its oil wealth and its multi-billion-dollar purchases of US arms. "Strength is telling the truth even when it's hard".

"So I would tend to be with my colleagues on this issue, understanding Saudi Arabia's great strategic importance to us". They buy apartments from me.

Dr. Alaa Ezz, secretary-general of the Federation of Egyptian Chambers of Commerce, told Arab News that Saudi Arabia ranks first in terms of Arab investments in Egypt. They have worked closely with us and have been very responsive to my requests to keeping oil prices at reasonable levels - so important for the world. Now, look, I don't have access to everything the president sees - I'm not sure what he's relying on.
