10:02 am
fact. i have zero question in my mind the. crown prince n.b.s. ordered the killing monitor and a killing knew exactly what was happening planned in advance if he was in front of a jury he would be convicted in thirty minutes guilty. so. the question is what we do about that saudi arabian in the different entities. if the saudi government is going to. be in the hands of this man. for a long time to come up and it very difficult to be able to do business because i think he's crazy i think he is dangerous and he has put their relationship at risk. only a strong response by the united states will send
10:03 am
a clear and unequivocal message that such actions are not acceptable in the world's stage and i think that's more important than ever and i hope that senator graham and my legislation which would create a real set of consequences mandatory global make netsky a series of sanctions beyond those that exist would be a very strong answer to what has happened last week both the secretary of state and the secretary of defense told the full senate there was no concrete evidence linking the crown prince to the murder senator graham used the term willfully blind and questions are asked to about president trump's ambivalence it would be really easy for the president to walk out into the press room today and just date that. that n.b.s. killed a journalist we know he killed a journalist. we know he ordered it we know he we we know that he
10:04 am
monitored it these are all people that are very close to him and and that is not acceptable for american standards in the days ahead senators will be discussing what action to take and here there is some division in the senate some one pledge a slave aimed specifically at declaring the guilt of the crown prince mohammed bin solomon others want a y u to bill drawn up which would include economic sanctions against saudi arabia including a ban on all weapons sales only one thing at the stage is clear given the mood after this briefing legislation there will be mike hanna al-jazeera washington and let's talk to mama drama was outside the saudi consulate in istanbul as we said a damning assessment was some reaction from. as for me it's too early now for a reaction we haven't yet heard from the government officials here but i can only
10:05 am
expect but this relation the latest developments in washington over the night will be music to their ears because they have been building a strong case they think they have been talking to the americans on the top on the highest level saying that we have a job unfinished in many ways many aspects have yet to be worked on not only the condemnation that the congress is trying to legislate but also in terms of the case itself the judiciary approach itself they want the u.s. to put more pressure on the saudis and they think that they have now been vindicated by those statements by the congress leaders when they heard the testimony of the cia leader chief and now they think that this can only galvanize their efforts and help them with regards to the pressure they need to be put on the saudis to give more information about the case to get more information about who gave the order to kill. information crucially about what happened to the body because they think that this case can only be completed in terms of the
10:06 am
investigation and all the elements only when those two questions are answered you can only the body because they have been searching for it for two months now the saudis exactly know everybody knows that they know through those people who are in custody that they know what happened to this body and they can make those people talk about it and give those information to the techs and hear. what what comes next is maybe some statements from turkey consolidating and confirming these ideas and probably more requests for the for the americans to approach the case was strongly and put pressure on the saudis and forced them to to talk more about what happened thank you for that mohammed valley life for us in istanbul. and otherwhile news u.n. special envoy for yemen and the rebels have arrived in sweden for peace talks it's hoped the negotiations would and would end rather the four year old war which she
