Whether will apply "Magnitsky Act" to Saudi Arabia? Georgy Bovt's comment


The American media demand to punish Riyadh for murder of the journalist Gamal Khashoggi in Turkey. The U.S. President Donald Trump, in turn, critically estimated the idea about the termination of arms supplies at Saudi Arabia Georgy Bovt. Photo: Mikhail Senator of the U. S. Congress Rand Paul declared Fomichev/TASS determination to try to obtain the termination of deliveries of the American weapon to Saudi Arabia. Washington is ready to take this step if it becomes clear that Riyadh is involved in murder of the Saudi journalist Gamal Khashoggi in the Turkish consulate of the kingdom. The president Donald Trump, in turn, criticized the idea. According to him, in that case Saudi Arabia will redirect money to Russia and China. The American press demands from administration to show adherence to principles in the matter. How far can Washington in the reaction to this murder come? The situation is commented by Georgy Bovt. Fleeing Saudi Arabia, Gamal Khashoggi located in Virginia and wrote columns for Washington Post though earlier sharply criticized the United States. To kill him in the territory of the USA as spy traitor Saudis would hardly decide. On the trouble Khashoggi decided to marry the Turkish woman, he needed the certificate on a divorce with the former wife. The American consulate of the kingdom refused to give it, having sent Khashoggi to Istanbul where it came on October 2 into consulate of Saudi Arabia. At it there were Apple Watch smartwatches interfaced to the bride's iPhone. Allegedly on them tortures of the journalist in which 15 Saudi security officers who arrived by a special board were engaged were also recorded. According to other version, intelligence agencies of Turkey stuffed with "bugs" the Saudi consulate and all removed. Khashoggi's body was dismembered and taken out from consulate in parts. Washington which gave Khashoggi's haven needs to react. Donald Trump declared possible "severe consequences", but on it his fuse ran low so far. Foreign Ministers of Great Britain, Germany and France made a joint statement in which they urged "to make reliable investigation to establish the truth, and if it is necessary, to define guilty persons". The American liberal media demand to show adherence to principles. The Washington Post newspaper in the editorial article urges Riyadh "to tell all truth". Also Turkey which has relations with Saudis so-so wishes to insert five kopeks, and with Americans recently strongly deteriorated because of arrest of the American pastor Andrew Branson whom Ankara just decided to release (he already carried out a joint prayer with Trump). From video which Turks showed to the western intelligence agencies it is difficult to wave away. It Petrov and Boshirov's not photos walking across Salisbury, but which are not "caught" on video cameras near Skripal's house. Saudi Arabia — the key partner of the USA in the Middle East. Lay great hopes on Mahomed bin Salman Al Saod leading the country in respect of a kingdom westernisation. To the Saudi measures it for the West — purely Gorbachev. There are also mercantile reasons.
