Saudis reject threats amid concern over writer

Britain and the U.S. are also considering boycotting the conference, the BBC has learned.

"What has reportedly happened in Turkey ... if proved true, would clearly change the ability of any of us in the West to do business with the Saudi government", he said in a statement.

In a statement on Sunday, the kingdom said it rejected any threats of economic sanctions or political pressure and would retaliate accordingly.

Kudlow told ABC's This Week that Mnuchin would "make up his mind as the week progresses and as new information surfaces".

Reports suggest an assault and struggle took place in the consulate after Mr Khashoggi entered the building to get some documents.

"So far the response from the White House has been very subdued at best", Leahy said in an interview on CNN this past week.

The fiancée of Jamal Khashoggi has said that she will only consider accepting Donald Trump's invitation to the White House if the U.S. president is prepared to make a "genuine contribution" to investigating the Saudi critic's disappearance. Russian Federation wanted it, China wanted it, we wanted it. "Arms sales are important not because of the money but because it also provides leverage over their future behavior".

Trump has said publicly that his administration is investigating Khashoggi's disappearance, and has promised to hold Saudi Arabia accountable.

Saudi Arabia is one of the world's top oil exporters.

Aldakhil added that Saudi arms purchases from the us and other trade could be at risk as well. "From the standpoint of jobs, economic development, a lot of other reasons, I would like to do something where we could maybe look at other things [than canceling the deal]". "Certainly our involvement in Yemen with Saudi Arabia will be effected".

But speaking to 60 minutes on Saturday, he warned the United States would be "very upset and angry" if the Saudis ordered Mr Khashoggi's killing. Khashoggi had been living in self-imposed exile in Virginia after leaving his home country previous year. The lawmakers' letter was a preliminary step under the Global Magnitsky Act toward taking punitive action.

Of course, Congress could have something to say about what might happen between the USA and Saudi Arabia.

Fears are growing over the fate of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi after Turkish officials said they believe he was murdered inside the Saudi consulate.

Yemeni Nobel Peace Prize laureate Tawakkol Karman (center) joins a demonstration outside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul earlier earlier this month. "There are other things we could do that are very, very powerful, very strong, and we'll do that". "Would you like to speak up about that?" he said, turning to Sen.

Turkey on Friday got back some of its geopolitical leverage and goodwill by freeing an American pastor imprisoned for almost two years. "There's a big list".

The Vermont independent senator Bernie Sanders on Sunday said the United States should withdraw support from the Saudi-led war in Yemen. He added, "Let's find out what did happen first".

"It's clear, we can not have an ally who murders, in cold blood, in their own consulate, a critic", Sanders said on CNN's State of the Union Sunday morning.
