Trump 'Stronger opinion' on Khashoggi case next week

"I don't think this bill would've passed prior to the events in Istanbul".

Representative Brad Sherman's bill, nicknamed "No Nuclear Weapons for Saudi Arabia Act of 2018", would prohibit Saudi Arabia's construction of nuclear weapons from the material it buys from the US, Vox reported Friday.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says officials from Saudi Arabia, the United States, Germany, France and Britain have listened to audio recordings related to the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

While the regime has so far fired several officials in relations to the case, many find Riyadh's explanation inadequate given its long history of killing anti-regime dissidents.

It remains unknown when Sherman's bill will be brought to the floor for a vote, but it will probably be after the new Democratic-controlled House of Representatives convenes on 3 January 2019.

"Now I think we have a chance".

Mr Sherman's bill could block Saudi Arabia's plans to obtain nuclear technology from the US.

Following a meeting on Saturday in Paris, U.S. President Donald Trump and French leader Emmanuel Macron agreed that the Saudi authorities needed to shed full light on Khashoggi's murder, a French presidency source said.

Erdoğan also criticized the stance of Saudi authorities.

MBS previously said in March that the kingdom does not want to produce a nuclear weapon, but it will if their arch-rival Iran develops one.

Hatice Cengiz said on Twitter late Thursday that Khashoggi's killers had deprived his loved ones of conducting funeral prayers and burying him in Medina, Saudi Arabia, as he had wished.

Mr Khashoggi was killed by Saudi officials inside the country's consulate in Istanbul last month.

"Saudi Arabia's Attorney General Saud Al-Mojeb did not answer the question concerning the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body".
