US asks Turkey for Khashoggi tape

President Donald Trump has asked Turkey for the tape it claims provides evidence of its allegation that Jamal Khashoggi was killed by Saudi agents. He said: “I’m not sure yet that it exists, probably does, possibly does.” Waiting to hear Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s report on his Riyadh and Ankara visits, Trump said that the truth would come out “by the end of the week.” He stressed that Saudi Arabia is one of the most important allies of the United States but denied he was trying to defend the kingdom in the Khashoggi affair. “I want to find out what’s happening,” he said, but criticized another case of “guilty until proven innocent.”

    Turkey is allied with Iran and Russia. Not trustworthy at all. Of course it is Turkey which provides all the “evidences” and accuses Saudi Arabia especially MbS. I don’t trust Turkey at all.

    As Deceptive and Cunniving and Untrustworthy Turkey is..even a broken can give the correct time twice in a day. This will be a turning point for all..Anyone who jumps in to take advantage of trade sanction.whether Russsia..or China…will be be seen as an abettor..If we are to truly make these tribal based regimes understand this cannot be tolerated by any civilized nation..then ALL major powers must rebuke the act other wise it will be repeated again and again . Citizens everywhere will be afraid to speak or write. It is simply unacceptable.
