Pompeo Arrives in Turkey to Discuss Missing Saudi Journalist

ANKARA – United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo traveled on Wednesday to Ankara to speak with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan about the disappearance of a dissident Saudi Arabian journalist who disappeared two weeks ago after entering his country’s consulate in Istanbul.

Pompeo traveled to meet Erdogan a day after holding talks with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman over the disappearance and alleged murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post writer critical of the Saudi regime who has not been seen since he enter Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2 to fill out divorce papers while his fiancee waited outside.

“Before leaving Saudi Arabia, Sec. Pompeo speaks with reporters about his meetings with Saudi leadership,” Heather Nuaert, state department spokesperson, said on Twitter. “Next stop Turkey where he will stress the importance of a thorough, transparent and timely investigation into the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi,” she added.

Turkey has claimed it is in possession of evidence that the missing journalist was murdered inside the consulate complex and said investigative teams, comprising Turkish and Saudi inspectors, found evidence that material had been painted over.

Turkey’s bid to examine the consulate residence was blocked Wednesday by Saudi officials.

Saudi’s leadership told Pompeo it was committed to a full and transparent inquiry into Khashoggi’s disappearance although denies any involvement in the events of Oct. 2.
