Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince pledges Aramco flotation by early 2021

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said the kingdom has met its promise to Washington to make up for Iranian crude oil supplies lost through USA sanctions.

Khashoggi, who once acted as an adviser to the Saudi royal family, fled Saudi Arabia a year ago amid a crackdown on the kingdom's intellectuals and journalists. According to sources from both Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, one of the key points of contention was the resumption of oil production in the Partitioned Neutral Zone which was...

Separately, the Post's editorial board called on Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to ensure writer Jamal Khashoggi "is free and able to continue his work", which included writing columns critical of the upstart royal and the kingdom's policies.

Demonstrators hold pictures of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi during a protest in front of Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul.

The Saudi Consulate insists Khashoggi left its building, contradicting Turkish officials who say they believe he is still there.

"We are now above US$300 billion, we're getting close to US$400 billion". Presidential Spokesman İbrahim Kalın said earlier that they believe Khashoggi is still in the consulate. "We have nothing to hide", bin Salman said in a Bloomberg interview published Friday.

Khashoggi has been missing since he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul this Tuesday.

Prince Mohammed said that the kingdom could push capacity beyond 12 million barrels a day with additional investment, and that extra supplies are also available from Saudi Arabia's allies.

Khashoggi's fiancée refuted Saudi Arabia's claims to Reuters.

Notably, Khashoggi would not be the only Gulf national to have been arrested overseas to be returned to the kingdom, and other incidents have been far more public.

Suspicions about Riyadh's involvement in the disappearance are heightened by a number of similar incidents, including the surprise resignation of the Lebanese prime minister, Saad Hariri, a year ago while he was visiting Saudi Arabia. For instance, Nawaf Talal al-Rasheed, a Qatari national and a cousin of famed Saudi academic and critic Madawi al-Rasheed, was arrested in Kuwait and passed to Saudi authorities "under bilateral mutual security arrangements between Kuwait and Riyadh". Bin Salman also noted that the two-week timeframe was "not accurate", as Saudi Arabia existed long before the United States of America was a country.

Iran, OPEC's third-largest producer, has accused Trump of orchestrating the oil price rally by imposing sanctions on Tehran and accused its regional archrival Saudi Arabia of bowing to US pressure.
