Donald Trump har snakket med kong Salman om Jamal Khashoggis forsvinning. Kongen benektet enhver befatning med saken. For å komme til bunns i den sender Trump utenriksminister Mike Pompeo.

U.S. President Donald Trump said meanwhile he had spoken with King Salman about Khashoggi, a critic of the kingdom’s policies, and that he was sending Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to meet the king immediately.

Trump also said Salman denied “any knowledge of whatever may have happened” to Khashoggi, who disappeared after he went to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago, and told him the Saudis are working closely with Turkey on the case.

Kong Salman har gitt ordre om en intern granskning og saudierne sier at de kommer til å arbeide under høytrykk.

Men så langt har det ikke kommet en antydning til innrømmelse av at saudierne har noe med Khashoggis forsvinning å gjøre.
