"They deny it. They deny it every way you can imagine".
US-Saudi relations have grown even stronger since Trump took office. Trump is facing growing coercion from the United States opposition parties, who are calling for strict actions against Riyadh.
The report in the pro-government Sabah daily, which could not immediately be verified, emerged after a delegation from Saudi Arabia arrived in Turkey for a joint investigation into his disappearance.
Jamal Khashoggi has not been seen since last week.
As we previously reported, WWE is receiving criticism for their deal with Saudi Arabia and the upcoming Crown Jewel show, particularly after the disappearance of Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi, who is rumored to have been murdered in a plot from Saudi officials.
Pressure has been growing on the Saudi authorities, with MPs calling for the Government to downgrade its relationship with Saudi Arabia and global business leaders, including Sir Richard Branson, beginning to boycott the oil-rich kingdom.
Gay Students And Teachers Could Be Rejected From Religious Schools After Review
Mr Morrison said the proposals - which have not yet been debated by cabinet - would be considered "carefully and respectfully". Religious schools could be given a weapon to discriminate against LGBTI, according to a new report.
At the same time, Trump also asserts that he doesn't want to halt a planned sale of arms and military equipment to the Saudis because of the impact on USA manufacturers.
Trump says the sale is a "tremendous order for our companies". "I think we have to stand up to them and have to say that the current behaviour is unacceptable".
In London, Turkey's Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said that Turkish and Saudi officials have been talking, but that Saudi Arabia had not yet allowed Turkish prosecutors and investigators to examine inside the consulate.
Khashoggi has written extensively about Saudi Arabia, including criticism of its war in Yemen, its recent diplomatic spat with Canada and its arrest of women's rights activists after the lifting of a ban on women driving. "And you know what, there are other ways of punishing", he said, without elaborating. "And, maybe especially so because this man was a reporter".
Saudi Arabia interior minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud bin Naif bin Abdulaziz said reports that the Saudi government ordered the killing of Khashoggi were "lies and baseless allegations against the government of the Kingdom", according to a statement in the state-run Saudi Press Agency (SPA) published on Saturday morning. Let's say, they did.
The intrigue surrounding Khashoggi's disappearance has only deepened since he was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in the Turkish capital of Istanbul 10 days ago.
