The residence is at walking distance from the Saudi consulate, where Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist critical of the Saudi government and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed by a team of Saudi officers and officials.
A Democratic lawmaker at the US House of Representatives is reportedly planning to introduce a bill that bans Saudi Arabia from acquiring nuclear weapons in retaliation for the regime's murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi. "We gave them to Saudi Arabia, to America, to the Germans, French and the English - we gave them all". "They know", Erdogan said.
"There's no need to distort this issue, they know for certain that the killer, or the killers, is among these 15 people". "The murderers are surely among this 15 or 18, there's no need to look elsewhere".
He again called on Saudi Arabia to provide answers as to what happened to Khashoggi and his body.
Congressman Brad Sherman's bill, titled "No Nuclear Weapons for Saudi Arabia Act of 2018", would not only prohibit the kingdom's construction of nuclear weapons from the material it buys from the U.S., it would also force Saudi Arabia to uphold a number of strict regulations to ensure that classified material regarding USA nuclear technology does not get leaked. "Here [Turkey] is the place where the incident took place, you can discuss whatever you want to discuss here".
Last week, Turkish prosecutors announced preliminary findings that said Khashoggi was strangled to death in a premeditated killing soon after he entered the consulate.
But Riyadh hasn't yet identified the location of the body, despite requests by the sons of the slain Saudi journalist who made an emotional appeal for the return of their father's body, saying they wanted to return to Saudi Arabia to bury him. President Donald Trump has reiterated he does not want to jeopardise money coming into the United States from Saudi Arabia.
