Washington: The eldest son of murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has arrived in Washington along with his household from Saudi Arabia, in response to two sources near the household, after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo pushed for his return.
Salah Khashoggi, who holds twin US-Saudi citizenship and had up to now been underneath a journey ban, left Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.
He and his household joined his mom and his three siblings in Washington, the sources stated.
A number of hours after their arrival, the State Division stated Pompeo had advised Saudi leaders in Riyadh earlier this month “he needed Salah Khashoggi returned to america”.
“We’re happy that’s the case,” Pompeo stated, reiterating america continues to press for “all of the related information” within the killing of Khashoggi within the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.
