EYEAFRICA TV: Washington, USA: The U.S. has requested audio and video evidence concerning Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance “if it exists,” U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday.
“We have asked for it. If it exists we have asked for it,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office.
Earlier today the U.S. Secretary of State meets with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at Esenboga International Airport where they held talks on the missing of journalist Khashoggi which lasted for over 35-minutes long meeting ahead of President Erdogan official visit to Moldova.
U.S. Secretary of State also briefs the Turkish leader about his meetings in Saudi Arabia.
Khashoggi has not been since he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2 as fears have mounted he was killed in the diplomatic facility.
Trump continued to stand by Saudi Arabia but said he is “not giving cover at all” to Riyadh, whom he repeatedly called a close U.S. ally.
