Khashoggi fiancee:I'll meet Trump if he helps find truth

The fiancee of Jamal Khashoggi, the journalist who disappeared after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, said she will "consider" accepting an invitation to the White House only if the United States President Donald Trump makes a "genuine contribution" to the efforts to reveal what happened to Khashoggi.

Khashoggi disappeared on October 2, after entering the Saudi consulate to obtain documents needed for his wedding. The Turkish government said it has evidence that he was killed in the building. "Twelve days have passed. I have been waking up every morning hoping to hear from him. The speculations about his fate have not been confirmed by the authorities, but the silence of Saudi Arabia fills me with dread," Hatice Cengiz wrote in an op-ed published in the New York Times.

"If he is dead, and I hope that is not the case, thousands of Jamals will be born today, on his birthday. His voice and his ideas will reverberate, from Turkey to Saudi Arabia, and across the world. Oppression never lasts forever. Tyrants eventually pay for their sins," Cengiz wrote.
