The US Senate may formally condemn the crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman al Saud for the murder of journalist Jamal Hashukji in Istanbul.
It is reported by the Washington Post.
It is noted that the vote in the Senate on this issue may take place before the end of the year, if no one interferes with the plans of the Chairman of the Senate foreign policy Committee Bob Corker to speed up the organization of voting.
According to the publication, the Senate can call on the Saudi Prince to take responsibility and take appropriate measures, including demanding from the Saudi authorities “to stop aggressive policies in the Gulf countries” and in Yemen, to complete the blockade of Qatar, as well as the policy of “imprisonment of human rights defenders”.
In addition, Corker noted that the statement of the senators will serve as “a rebuke” to the President of the United States Donald Trump, who refused to blame the Prince of involvement in the case Hashukji.
Earlier, the US Senator Marco Rubio expressed concern that the Alliance of the US and Saudi Arabia amid investigation into murder of journalist Jamal Hashukji could eventually draw Washington into trouble.
