2:01 am
floated in the last few days the idea of extending that transition period to try to get a trade deal which gets around the irish problem but she was on the defensive and said that she is not at the moment considering an extension. the bricks it talks are not about my interests they are about the national interest and the interests of the whole of the united kingdom. serving serving our national interest will demand that we hold our nerve through these last ages of the negotiations the hardest part of all it will mean not giving in to those who want to stop bricks it with the politicians vote politicians telling the people they got it wrong the first time and should try. and it will mean focusing and it will mean focusing on the prize that lies before us how is all of this playing out for her and i deem in other words how much trouble is sheehan.

2:21 am
positions of power those are the headlines inside story is up next on al-jazeera. can saudi arabia get away with murder the kingdom continues to deny crown prince mohammed bin selman ordered. killing turkey's president is promising to reveal the quotes naked truth about what happened in istanbul the saudis be pressured to hold a credible investigation this is inside story. hello
2:22 am
and welcome to the program i'm peter adultery the naked truth about the killing of jamal khashoggi techie's president is vowing to reveal a whole on tuesday three weeks in and this will be the first official release of the details on officially tech you sources have repeatedly leaked gruesome accounts of how the journalist was killed and his body dismembered three weeks ago he was missing for two weeks before saudi leaders eventually admitted his killing by mistake inside the consulate in istanbul their story has changed since then the phrase rogue operation is the latest what isn't changing as the kingdom's insistence that the crown prince mohammed bin solomon did not order any killing as the international outcry continues critics a skeptical that the heir apparent didn't know anything about it and that's why guests in just a moment but first let's hear now from turkey's president. we are going to make it
2:23 am
clear what happened to jamal khashoggi and god willing on tuesday i will have a group meeting and hopefully by then i'll be able to find out what happened because we are looking for justice here we want simple and street justice it will not be achieved by some simple steps we will make everything clear fifteen people came here subsequently eighteen people are arrested or detained so all these pieces of information need to be clarified and on tuesday i will go into details of the situation. saudi arabia's foreign minister his death was quote a huge and grave mistake to be denied the crown prince mohammed bin so mom knew about the operation the minister telling fox news the crown prince is not aware of this even the senior leadership of our intelligence services were not aware of this this was an operation that was rogue the individuals who did this did this outside the scope of their off already there obviously was a tremendous mistake made and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to
2:24 am
cover it up that was unacceptable in any government these things unfortunately happen we want to make sure that those who are responsible punished. ok let's get going let's bring in our guests today all in washington we have alley who's the director of the gulf affairs institute and a former saudi political prisoner we're also be joined by matthew broad skee a senior fellow with the security studies group in d.c. and finally on skype is mustapha senior fellow with the cato institute center for global liberty and prosperity he's also a contributing writer to the new york times welcome to you all. first if i may come to you how isolated are they feeling in riyadh right now i believe they feel extremely isolated for the first time in the western governments have
2:25 am
targeted. saudi arabia in general but specifically the rolling family for criticism when you see the u.k. specifically who has been the greatest the greatest defender of the saudi monarchy making such statements then this is a great indicator of the isolation of saudi arabia is still however the country or the government feels it has allies within the arab world in egypt in the u.a.e. and others but. you know that only it's in the west it's position has as diminished greatly in the past two weeks matthew coming to you also in washington horses it's about the leadership they don't seem to understand that since day one they've been hemorrhaging credibility with this. i think now that it turns out that they decided to say that they were responsible for it or at least elements within the government
2:26 am
were responsible for that it was taking time to figure out exactly how they were going to handle the situation as far as credibility certainly it has taken a shot as a result of this i think a lot of the reporting has also taken a shot most of the leaks which came out happened to come from a state run news organizations that were that and that up giving out details that happened to turn out not to be true so there was also a way in which other regional governments were of course trying to use this crisis in which to in order to benefit themselves but i mean it's a tough situation clearly for the kingdom mustafa as far as the ultimate response is concerned and we don't know what will be yet will probably several weeks away from that perhaps months does that rely on the troops coming from riyadh not riyadh's truth not even a truth that's acceptable to washington but from the administration but the real
2:27 am
truth. well first of all let me say that riad taking responsibility in this is not very credible because right after the disappearance of two marco shipped to the first thing they said for four days after the incident the crown prince is he came in and he left and you can search the consulate we're all safe and you know we're proud nothing nothing went wrong so they insist that there was nothing wrong and all three weeks of exposure is by the turkish authorities by the turkish media and ultimately western media going after after after day finally had to admit that democracy it was killed on that day but now they're saying giving us another story saying that he was accidentally killed and so on and so forth and i think that's not credible either and i think we will see the exposure of this second line of defense if you will in the days and weeks ahead i think a lot of people who look at this objectively without falling into the agenda of any
2:28 am
government that bianca or washington or riyadh can see that there is really good but i also think that this was a yet another operation to crackdown on dissent by the saudi crown prince and his is all establishment which was the very thing that jim allchin she too was writing about this was one reason he was out of saudi arabia and he didn't raise his voice and that is the main reason he was killed. the more that donald trump. because he has to because he has to react towards what people might pump aoe saying does that make the powers that be inside the royal palace in riyadh does that make them look even more alone. absolutely i want to make sure that the to point this out that the president despite his. detractors has been the most vocal american presidents on the saudi human rights issues. into this
2:29 am
this case so no american president before him has even spoken this way in public and even you know talked about the punishment of sanctions or so on but his private feelings apparently are also doubting his public statements i don't take them face value sometimes but i think his private feelings and some of his public statements are making the riyadh fearful that he may turn against them and their sway to see but this is the greatest american the action to anything coming out of saudi arabia it's greater than september eleventh. and it's different because it started it in the market this time it's not dark it's not blaming the people of the country or the so-called extremists in the country splay me the monarchy and in particular the man in charge of the country mohamed was helmont and
2:30 am
that stuff moustapha with the leadership perhaps feel less isolated if they could point the world towards where the body is but if we believe the reports they can't do that because they desecrated the body for a muslim in the worst possible way. i think so i mean i don't think they i think they said the minimum they can say for a cover up they said he accidentally died and we don't know and the body was this pows and they don't even explain how that happened and this is not a credible story and and turkish intelligence has been leaking to the turkish press and let's say ok turkey has a pull to goal agenda here or so some bias against riyadh or but there is evidence there's evidence like a footage we do know footage for example showing that a team of hit squad came from saudi arabia that they specifically for this alternately as i think they desegregated the body they cornered into pieces and
2:31 am
buried in different parts of the stumble turkish police is in search of body parts and if they find that that will be a another blow on the not we see as the night of coming from saudi arabia and of course turks are turkish sources are speaking of the tape audiotape that was recorded inside the consulate and how that came to be it's not that clear but if that tape tape exists and i do think it does based on my contacts in turkey and based on what i heard from other people who might have heard the tape but if that comes out too i think that would be the end of the book but when let's not forget that for example today turkish daily initial publish in the very important story as well apparently based on some leaks from intelligence sources it's there have evidence that the head of the squad who killed him out the ship called the secretary of crown prince mohammed bin soma four times that after that again goes
2:32 am
against the narrative we're now hearing from saudi arabia that this was a rogue element and stake in the crown prince didn't know and now he's going for the after the killers for justice and yet another reason now this is to think that this is not credible well as we've been hearing during the last two or twenty days of the saga international pressure continues to mount the u.k. france and germany are going to calling for an urgent clarification of what happened they say the investigation needs to be backed by credible facts the german chancellor angela merkel has suspended arms sales to saudi. first we condemn this act in the strongest tense as we might today second there is an urgent need to clarify what happened from having this cleared out and those responsible held to account thirdly i agree with all those who are saying that it will be it already limited and six bullets can take place in the current circumstances. matthew why the germans happy to up the pressure in this way up the end well i mean
2:33 am
the germans or the europeans have nothing to lose in this and frankly the main pressure is on the united states and on washington and really that's what this entire affair gets down to is what washington is about to do about the situation in which case there might be the type of sanctions according to the magnitsky act which is something that was to punish for humanitarian violations that started in the context of russia of course the us applied those to the interior and justice minister of turkey when it came to the arrest and detention ongoing detention of pastor bronson so this is some type of middle ground where the u.s. could sanction some royals depending on who it would be and still send a hard message that the u.s. is not going to tolerate such type of behavior especially against the press i will say though that the united states especially the trump administration is quite aware of the deplorable record of many of those who have been in the accusing role
2:34 am
right now when it comes to media especially of course how turkey locks up all kinds of journalists and of course pastor brunson as it turned out so there are really bad records that need to go to the united states might do well to promote a humanitarian type of agenda and a freedom of the press and those type of ideals throughout the region as opposed to merely focusing on saudi arabia i mean let's also remember right now the interpol chief has been gone disappeared apparently resigned. so we hear from china no one really talks about that and that kind of seems to be something along the exact same lines that we're seeing here i don't particularly want to get into a book horse about these of the people conversation matthew and i think we we do need to keep this focus on what we discussing today. does king solomon have a clear vision of where he's going with this at the moment. i mean.
2:35 am
regardless of what you hear the media is not in place capacity to to run the state his health is not well his age and he is basically isolated he hasn't seen his wife for four years and. his son mohammed his cell man has control absolute control over home his he controls his access so he is he is the picture in the frame but he is not the person holding the wheel of the of the state it is mohamed bin cell man like him or hate him he is the man in charge and he makes all the decisions. the father is used as as a shield here. her medicine man finds it useful so the king is not in a capacity to make any decisions themselves having said that i think it's important
2:36 am
now with the us or in government it's not enough to rely on saudi and turkish investigation that's why an international investigation i think by the un security council to conduct this investigation and this has a strategic value because it's not only going to tell us the truth of what happened and who did what but also it will go. to play an important part in improving the human rights records of saudi arabia and its neighbors because what happens saudi arabia is central country that will impact the rest of the muslim world and another thing is. this murder happened in the consulate which is bill which is under the control of our villages where the saudi foreign minister so i hope somebody will start talking about what did he know and what was his role because the council is his employee and some of those people in the team. saudi diplomats so let's talk about also i did
2:37 am
a deal where not only m.b.a.'s and what he knew about this murder and what was his role in to it moustapha let's just stay with that talking point that ali just mentioned the crown prince a k a is also known as m.b.'s moment in samarra what's your reading in amongst this isolation that they are apparently feeling in riyadh what's your reading of the way that we're told it's reported they may just be leaks we can't confirm them that the crown prince does feel dismay he feels anger he feels confusion because he apparently completely misread the signals when it was coming to the international reaction to what happened you know i can imagine i'm not going to get expert on saudi more likely and it's dynamics but i can imagine that the saudi crown prince is angry at the reactions but what we would he expect or what would anybody who does this expect i mean. there is a there is a dynamic here and there is this dynamic of this new young crown prince liberalizing his country doing social reforms some good reforms in need of the
2:38 am
whole praise in the past few years but then uses that to in brownie points in the us and then to crack down on opposition and this this murder is not an isolated incident so we have read reports in the washington post that saudi officials go to canada and threaten the saudi dissident in canada saying that go back go back to saudi arabia otherwise your family members will go to jail and they said we are giving you the blessings of crown prince so this was going on and i think he had this naive idea that he can crack down on dissent silence all those critics and then make whole the whole world love him and how the world doesn't work that way luckily so ultimately the strategy that blowed up and it just worked against him and i want to say one more thing on the what about ism i think and that. turkey my country is not great on press freedom either so let's talk honestly about that and i am a critic of the journalists who are in jail in turkey for trumped up charges the
2:39 am
death of that very fact but. but this is an incident in itself and something like this is too wild for turkey no turkish journalist has ever been killed and it recently and in his body got lost and every incident i think should be looked at itself in this case turkish officials turkish media have been leaking giving to the press helpful information to show what really happened thanks to that we know that the saudi squad came from saudi arabia that they fifteen men into the private planes and got the body of democracy and then killed killed him and now as we understand that i mean if that didn't happen you wouldn't know this so the states might have their own political interests and pose a political positions they might have on their glass houses but every incident should be i think deserved in itself and at this point in the job market incident we had a i thing a state assemblyman called bloody right hand it matthew the crown prince we
2:40 am
understand is in charge of reforming his intelligence services that means point number one how does he do it in point number two it also means his father king selma clearly still sees him as a repair and. right yeah and i think it would be completely ludicrous to think that there would be reform of intelligence agencies that would be open and transparent and that goes against everything that intelligence agency is so of course he's going to be the one who redoes the intelligence agency i mean the lesson is hopefully that you can't act in such a manner and get away with it without having some form of punishment but the overall perspective of the united states is of course going to be as you said focused on the long term idea of the twenty thirty reform plan which the united states stands fully behind it understands the trump administration that it's going to occur and evenly and this is of course
2:41 am
a extraordinary divergence from that plan but the idea of a reformed modernized saudi arabian society serving as an example for the rest of the region is something very important and the united states of course needs them in a coalition to push back on iran which happens to be the number one goal that the president has articulated for the region which outweighs the idea that some are peddling which is that the united states should of course just sever its relationship with saudi arabia and then essentially stab itself in the foot as it comes to its own interests and its foreign policy. was undoubtedly the front line of free thought as that front line no jump to the border into serbia arabia has that front line fund itself inside the in the chambers of the royal palace.
2:42 am
when the what i'm getting from palace is that many are shocked and dismayed and fearful of mohammed of his man and. the his his action on this. you know but killing and murdering the this. but saudi arabia supported by the united states has only was silenced critics and executed critics and opposition. figures and the saudi monarchy would not have been able to do this and maintain control and would deprive roman of for example from driving to be the last country in the world in cinemas without american support i want to make sure that the saudi palace would would not have been able to do what it does without american british support so i i decide i disagree completely with the notion that the u.s. is wanting to reform the country building some projects in
2:43 am
a car economic product that's not ready for of otherwise we should call mr you know kim jong un in korea as a reformer because he actually built more. buildings in north korea says he took over than saudi arabia did so this is not the the reform this is reform is when when you allow the people of voice when you allow people participation in the government that is a reform but building a project in this or project or something that's not reform these are just merely economic projects and any anybody can do that so ali i just wanted raises because i want to get one final point if i may moustapha is this is a huge wakeup call for the saudis in as much as do what you wanted yemen no consequences pick a fight with the canadians no consequences steer the g.c.c. blockade of plants are no consequences snuff out one reasonable voice of free speech and do it in the way you allegedly did it there will be consequences.
2:44 am
there should be consequences and president trumps that there can be so we are sponsors and that should happen what i want out is and i think the u.s. should take a much more tough stance against saudi arabia after this incident i also want to say one more thing if there will be a genuine reform in saudi arabia that would be turning into a constitutional monarchy not an absolute monarchy where a young prince can come and grab hold of power and kill and silence whomever he wants and make some cosmetic reforms but a constitutional monarchy when there's an elected parliament where people can join the system the balance of the monarchy is the power of the modern monarchy is balanced a system like in morrocco or late late autumn an empire otherwise a despotic prince may go another one may come may be a good christian go by somebody else can come the question is how he could constrain power inside bravia and in the rest of the muslim world and i think the
2:45 am
path for that is structural reform not just one young prince coming up it's an offense the ideas and doing some social cosmetic things but also butchering his dissidents in foreign consulate that's not acceptable and i think that's not the kind of reform that we should go for and we should hail in the gentleman we have to leave it there but thank you so much for your time today thanks to all our guests. matthew broad ski and mustapha and thank you to you for watching you can see the show again any time via the web site al jazeera dot com is the address and for more discussion go to our facebook page that's facebook dot com forward slash a.j. inside story you can also join the conversation on twitter handle is at a.j. inside story for me peace at all be on the team here in doha thanks for watching i'll see you soon.

increasing saudi rulers deny crown prince mohammed bin said a man is linked to the killing of his critic meanwhile indonesia's president jochen we doto delivered a call for a transparent and thorough investigation that's as he welcomed the saudi foreign minister their meeting in the city of bogor is believed to be first with a foreign leader since she disappeared and turkey's president says he'll be revealing on tuesday what he calls the naked truth about the killing in istanbul of five turkish employees of the saudi consulates have given statements to prosecutors and turkish forensic experts are combing a saudi consulate car found in istanbul almost three weeks after she disappeared and president's spokesman says his government will go to the end to reveal what happened to. that kid ilish this matter is going to be brought to light with no reservations and no questions whatsoever this is our duty the president has had to
2:51 am
telephone conversations with the king of saudi arabia the joint will was to find an acceptable solution to the matter rather than create problems between the two countries joining us from istanbul to talk us through the comments that are being made by the act party this ahead of her to ones statement on tuesday. well during you know there's been an increase in not only the number of statements made by turkish officials over the past forty eight hours with regards to the patrol to case but also an increase in their tone adamant they say that they will be releasing all the information they will not leave anything uncovered they will not allow for a cover up or anything but the truth to come out as you pointed out their president saying he will ensure that the naked truth be revealed on tuesday obviously a lot of emphasis now a lot of attention being turned to anchorage through the leadership here that has been pretty decisive in making people aware of the events that surrounded.
2:52 am
his disappearance from the beginning they didn't allow for the side with the narrative to essentially take hold they ensured that people were first made aware that time out of control she never left the building by releasing the c.c.t.v. or of him entering and making sure that the saudis had to prove that he exited obviously they failed to do that and then when the narrative started going that maybe he was being he had been kidnapped maybe that this was rogue elements that tried to kidnap him but failed but killed him by mistake again the turks decided to leak information throughout so they have been very much in the driving seat when it comes to how the world has been informed as to what happened to you however they have failed to provide the conclusive evidence that shows how they were able to set saying what happened to him they have failed to up to the information that they have been leaking they have failed to come out and say specifically that even though they have alluded to the fact that this operation was done and could have
2:53 am
only been done by a directive of the most senior levels in the saudi monarchy namely crown prince mohammed bin ten month by releasing footage of some of his closest on inside the country at the time and by releasing information that's this person had motive made for phone calls to the crown prince his personal secretary wildstorm out of such a view was being. they feel to come out and say that explicitly so that's why everybody is waiting to see what president will see in ankara on tuesday because this will be determined decisive rather in telling us will turkey follow through on its promise to deal with this in terms of the or on the basis of seeking justice on the basis of ensuring that the laws that have been broken the international norms that have been essentially trashed by those who came to kill this journalist and lure him into the diplomatic building behind me whether they will base their assessment of the conclusion of their investigations on that or whether they will
2:54 am
be taking into consideration some sort of deals or other. political kind of considerations that may influence just how much they see so far the turks say that would be immoral they wouldn't do that they will not do that they will prove decisive and what about the developments related to the saudi a diplomatic car that's now been found in istanbul. well again more evidence or more information let's say being given by the turkish officials they've now would disclose pictures of this vehicle that is registered to the diplomatic mission has diplomatic number plates on it which they found in a car park in one of the areas in istanbul they had been looking for it for a while now now what they say is that based on traffic camera footage that they've examined this car into the car park it was followed by a second car the second car was then loaded with objects we're not sure if that's
2:55 am
documents or actual bags or objects from the diplomatic vehicle and then it drove off they have wanted to search this vehicle but because this vehicle is a diplomatic vehicle essentially that enjoys the same immunity that the building behind me does as well as those who are diplomatic attaches here or in any other country based on the vienna convention the authorities still haven't been able to search that vehicle they're still waiting for the saudis to give them the go ahead before that they had also released footage of this double that the saudis sends part of this fifteen man squad that was sent here to assassinate. this guy dresses up as clothes exits the building from the exits behind puts on a fake beard in attempt to trick police into thinking that jamal had left the building were no longer he had been killed inside he then goes to one of the most busiest places or one of the busiest places rather in istanbul in an attempt to kind of get lost amongst the crowds but the footage or the c.c.t.v.
2:56 am
cameras in so far nothing about where he was pick him up show him going into the toilets an accomplice gives him a bag that has clothes he changes into those takes off the beard goes to have some food dumps the clothes on the way back and then is seen quite. let's say mercilessly at least or insensitively if that's an understatement actually laughing after having completed his role in this elaborate elaborate assassination plan so the. it's other information that's being given as well as also footage that's been played by the turkish media of officials in the consulate behind me burning documents just twenty four hours it's believed according to the turkish channel which brought across this burning documents in the garden of the consulate behind us so a lot of suspicious movements a lot of suspicious objects of vehicles and other things that are pointing to even more guilt with regards to the saudis thank you donald trump special adviser and son in law says he's counseled mohamed bin said man on the case he's known to be
2:57 am
close to the crown prince. what kind of vice if you give in this in this situation just to be transparent to be fully transparent there with the world is watching this is a very very serious accusation and that's our white house correspondent kimberly how to tell us what more jerry kushner had to say what was the message that he was trying to send out in that interview considering that pressure has really been building from both sides on president trump. the white house remains cautious on its stance in terms of its reaction it is waiting for the outcome of the not only saudi but the turkish investigations and that is something that remains a priority for this white house not only did he remind the crown prince of the world is watching but he also was asked directly whether or not the united states and this white house trust the saudis to investigate themselves he said in fact that the united states is not relying solely on that investigation but is instead
2:58 am
getting information from quote multiple places and then the secretary of state will work with the national security team to make a determination in terms of how to react moving forward and you're right this white house is getting a lot of pressure from capitol hill from the u.s. congress to take action not only potentially to block arms sales but also perhaps to put in place economic sanctions and even is just suggesting in discussing the expulsion of the saudi ambassador to the united states still the white house tends to continue to emphasize that it believes that saudi arabia is an important ally and as well that there are u.s. interests at heart namely we have to remember that coming up next month there is the important sanctions that are being put in place towards iran that the trumpet ministrations very focused on because that would certainly put in jeopardy some of the oil supply given the fact that this is targeting oil exports and certainly the
2:59 am
united states is counting on saudi arabia to help and compensate for that so would be treasury secretary heading to saudi arabia himself what message is the aiming to send. well it's not clear what message she is aiming to send but i can tell you what message is being sent or how it's being received it is not very positive certainly there was a lot of pressure on the treasury secretary to not participate in the so-called davos in the desert or that saudi investment conference that is taking place this week we've seen a whole string of executives officials from the media world the business world finance attack all of those sectors withdrawing and the treasury secretary centrally said look i've got to make my determination and i will do that finally he said he would not be attending many people assume that meant he wasn't going to saudi arabia but that is not the case in fact that trip in general is still just not attending the conference and he is defending that decision in fact saying that
3:00 am
the united states believes saudi arabia is an important ally when it comes to combating terror financing and that is why he is making the trip but i can tell you that is not being received not only very well by the u.s. congress but by ordinary americans and particularly since we have a congressional vote coming up in just a matter of weeks this is certainly not going to be well received and could be risky for donald trump at the ballot box all right carol thank you well website for saudi arabia future investment summit really was just saying wu davos in the desert has gone down it had earlier been hacked with messages calling out the kingdom over because you case and accusing the saudis of sponsoring terrorism so two main narratives appear to be emerging on she's killing one from turkey's investigation to the other is the changing saudi explanation turkish investigators say they have evidence the journalist was violent think killed in the saudi call.
