U.S. says 'handful more weeks' before sanctions over Khashoggi murder

Trump and his administration have been under increasing pressure to hold Saudi Arabia - and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, in particular - accountable for the death of Khashoggi. Imagine what would happen if Saudi Arabia were destabilized.
He entered the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul a month ago to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage, but never left. Writing for The Washington Post, he became a prominent critic of the family, particularly bin Salman.
The US will need a "handful more weeks" to decide if Saudi Arabia should be somehow sanctioned for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, Mike Pompeo has said, noting that Riyadh remains a "great partner" serving US national security.
"Jamal Khashoggi was not a unsafe person in any way possible".
Citing people familiar with the call, the New York Times and the Washington Post reported that the Saudi crown prince said Khashoggi belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood - outlawed by Riyadh and its Arab allies - and urged Kushner and Bolton to preserve the US-Saudi alliance.
The New York Times, Reuters and the Financial Times reported that the prince's return had sparked speculation about his role in the kingdom's crisis management efforts following the global outcry over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"Officials cautioned that no decision has been made, and Trump has expressed little desire to significantly alter US-Saudi relations, but there is an interest in a full vetting of the potential options", the Post said.
UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt also said it was an appalling act, adding that it had "possibly" given the United States and the UK a chance to put new pressure on Saudi Arabia over other issues.
