America is not covering up Khashoggi’s murder- Mike Pompeo

Dawn reported that three major memorandum of understanding (MoUs) amounting to over Dollars 10 billion will be inked during the Saudi Prince's visit.

"The Trump administration has blatantly turned a blind eye to this crime, and is now refusing to provide a required report about who is responsible for his murder, despite the fact that the Central Intelligence Agency concluded that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman personally ordered Khashoggi's killing", Kaine said in a statement Sunday.

Citing Saudi and American officials, the WSJ reported that the Saudi government has so far resisted attempts by Washington to pressure it to hold Qahtani accountable.

Riyadh has thus far staunchly resisted US pressure to take action against Saud al-Qahtani over Khashoggi's October 2 slaying in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing anonymous Saudi and American officials.

Prince Mohammad will be accompanied by 130 royal guards during the visit.

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan was among a handful of heads of state who attended Riyadh's flagship investment conference, an event that was boycotted by many companies and world leaders in protest over Khashoggi's murder.

But Democrats and, even some Republicans, do not agree that what they received from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was sufficient.

Graham said he and Menendez are "going to take appropriate action" to put a bill on the President's desk, and called the murder of Khashoggi "barbaric beyond acceptance". "We are working diligently on that".
