What did happen to Jamal Khashoggi, according to the king?

"If the Saudis are involved, if Khashoggi was killed or harmed or whatever, bad outcome here".

Other companies and high-profile businessmen have pulled out of the three-day conference known as "Davos in the desert", which is scheduled to begin on October 23 in Riyadh. Saudi consulate officials have said that missing writer and Saudi critic Jamal Khashoggi went missing after leaving the consulate, however the statement directly contradicts other sources including Turkish officials.

"Growing tensions over the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul has proved supportive for oil prices", said ING commodities strategist Warren Patterson, as quoted by Reuters.

Actor Gerard Butler canceled a trip to Saudi Arabia for a screening of his film "Hunter Killer" after the disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

In the meantime, Lieberman said it's important for the U.S.to maintain its relationship with Saudi Arabia because the king is "the best hope we've had for modernizing Saudi Arabia in a long time".

"The kingdom affirms its total rejection of any threats and attempts to undermine it, whether by threatening to impose economic sanctions, using political pressures or repeating false accusations", the statement said.

His remarks prompted Saudi Arabia to threaten to use its economic muscle to respond to any punitive measure but Rai al-Youm, a pan-Arab newspaper based in London, said the kingdom might have to ready itself for new "milking" by the US.

Khashoggi, a self-exiled Saudi journalist and prominent critic of the Saudi crown prince, was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Turkey on October 2 to obtain documents he needed to get married.

JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon has cancelled plans to attend an investment conference in Riyadh amid growing tensions between the United States and Saudi Arabia.

"The kingdom rejects any threats", the Saudi Press Agency reported, citing an official it didn't identify.

Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF), which hosts the conference, has tentatively committed $20 billion to an infrastructure investment planned with Blackstone Group.

The meeting is on, even though several officials and media companies have pulled out of the conference due to the Khashoggi's disappearance.

The Uber investment was the PIF's first major deal in the technology start-up market, signaling its shift in strategy toward more aggressive and eye-catching foreign investments.

Those policies are all seen as initiatives of the crown prince, who has also presided over a roundup of activists and businessmen.
