Turkey: Pompeo arrives to Ankara amid Khashoggi investigation

Turkey, Ankara
October 17, 2018 at 08:14 GMT +00:00 · Published

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived to Ankara on Wednesday, where he is expected to meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to discuss the disappearance of renowned Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Pompeo's visit to Turkey comes after a stop in the Saudi capital, where he met with Saudi foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir, King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Khashoggi had gone to the consulate on October 2 to prepare documents for his upcoming marriage but has not been seen since. His fiancee claims to have waited outside for 11 hours but says he did not return.

So far, Saudi authorities maintain that Khashoggi left the building on the same afternoon as his visit.

US President Donald Trump and Pompeo have since reiterated that King Salman and saudi officials denied knowledge of what happened to Khashoggi.
