Senators send rebuke to Saudis, Trump over Khashoggi killing

JOHN BOOZMAN A no vote on end to supporting Saudis in war in Yemen Pompeo: No Direct Link Between Crown Prince, Khashoggi Death

The list of named individuals does not include Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is in Argentina for the G20 summit.

An effort underway in Washington, D.C., would create an in-your-face way to remind Saudi Arabia of the killing of Jamal Khashoggi: Rename the street in front of the Saudi embassy in honor of the slain journalist.

The block on United States military support for the Saudi-led campaign in Yemen was an "unprecedented setback for the Saudis and the Trump administration", Bruce Riedel, of the Brookings Institution, said. "They were accusing people who disagreed with him as somehow loving Obama".

The resolution does not explicitly halt USA arms sales to Saudi Arabia, as folks like Sen.

Khashoggi's murder is "abhorrent" and "represents an unconscionable attack on the freedom of expression of all individuals", she added.

Argentina has cooperation agreements with Saudi Arabia in tourism and other areas.

The meeting with the Saudi crown prince was Modi's first in a set of "bilaterals" on the sidelines of the G20 that will be followed by meetings with U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Trump has dismissed a Central Intelligence Agency assessment that bin Salman likely ordered Khashoggi's murder.

Canada is imposing sanctions on 17 Saudi Arabian nationals suspected of being linked to the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Germany has moved to halt arms sales to Saudi Arabia over the Khashoggi killing and Denmark has suspended future approvals of weapons and military equipment exports there.

Echoing Trump's public comments on the killing, Pompeo said after Wednesday's briefing with senators that there was "no direct reporting" connecting the crown prince to the murder, and Mattis said there was "no smoking gun" making the connection. Growing interest in showing the Saudis that, Khashoggi or no, the U.S. still supports them, has meant that Yemen is once again a low priority. Mr Corker said senators would have a chance to vote to proceed to the resolution next week as well as vote on amendments. Saudi Arabia remained indifferent to calls from the global community, the increasing humanitarian price of the war and the fact that the battle would remain futile.

Since he took office in 2014 at the head of a Hindu-nationalist government, Modi has sought to expand ties with Saudi Arabia and other Islamic nations to deny arch foe Pakistan an advantage and to leverage India's fast-growing economy as an attractive investment. Trump has praised a pending arms deal with the kingdom that he says will provide the USA with jobs and lucrative payments, though some outside assessments say the economic benefits are exaggerated.
