Khashoggi's Fiancée Hatice Cengiz declined to meet the US President in the White House

  • Murdered Saudi Arabia journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s fiancée Hatice Cengiz declined a White House invitation to meet the US President Donald Trump. Reports say she accused the US administration of not being sincere about investigating Khashoggi’s murder at the Saudi consulate in Turkey 3-weeks back. On Friday, Turkey said they want extradition of 18 Saudi Arabia nationals arrested in Riyadh in connection to the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. On Saturday, US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis reportedly said that death of a person in a diplomatic consulate must be a concerning thing for everyone. He went on to say that failure of any country to adhere to the internationally agreed-upon norms and rules “undermines regional stability at a time when it is needed most”.
