 Saudi journalists have been killed for 1 months. The US Secretary of state: it will take several weeks to respond.


Reuters reported on Nov. 2 that Pompeo, in an interview in St. Louis on Thursday, said the authorities were considering imposing sanctions on people known to be involved. The Guardian reported on October 23 that the US State Department had revoked visas for 21 Saudi Arabian personnel related to Kashujis death.

Now Pompeo admits it will take several weeks to gather evidence before he can respond formally and enforce sanctions. But he insisted, Were going to get there, and The President instructed us to pursue the envoys behind this heinous crime. This time, however, his stance was somewhat contradictory.

We want to ensure that this strategic partnership will not be affected.

Two weeks ago, on October 16, Pompeo visited Saudi Arabia as Special Envoy of Trump to learn about the situation, when he asked the other side to give an account within 72 hours. In October 20th, the Saudi government held a press conference to admit that KASH was dead and arrested 18 people. Since then, the Saudi governments rhetoric has changed repeatedly and inconsistently, which has aroused more doubts and criticism from the outside world and pointed the envoy behind the scenes to Crown Prince Ben Saman.

In this interview, Pompeo emphasized that the United States would not forgive the murder of Kashugi, while talking about the deep and long-term strategic partnership between the United States and Saudi Arabia, We want to ensure that this [strategic partnership] relationship will not be affected.

Trump had previously publicly stated that he did not want to delay the $110 billion arms bill signed with Saudi Arabia last May because of Kashujis case. However, with the disclosure of Trumps interest in Saudi Arabia in the US media and the emergence of more and more details of the case, the voice of both parties in the US Congress calling for severe punishment of Saudi Arabia is growing.

Under pressure, Trump first hinted last week that Prince Ben Saman might be involved. The crown prince is the one over there, he said, and promised to check it out.

However, Prince Turkibin Faisalal Saud, former director of Saudi intelligence, just said on Wednesday that the United States is now using the Kashuji case to demonize Saudi Arabia and threaten relations between the two countries.

We cherish our strategic partnership with the United States and hope it will continue. We also hope that the United States can make a return, said Prince Feisal.

Peng Pao has not handled this matter well.

Vanity Fair, an American magazine, reported on October 21 that Washingtons diplomatic and intelligence community believed that Pompeos handling of Kashugis murder was not up to par.

A congressional assistant said that when Pompeo and Ben Saman smiled and shook hands in front of the camera on the 17th, many of the members present were surprised and speechless. We all have no confidence in whether the Secretary of state is doing his best to discover the truth. Another senior official of the former State Council sighed, Pompeio has not handled this matter well. He said: Pompeo can be more serious in the meeting and more careful in the wording of subsequent statements. Obviously, in this shocking case, the present government puts our values behind other interests. Source: observer network: Guo Han, editor in chief: Li Hang _BJS4645
