U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrives in Turkey

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara on Wednesday (October 17) following talks with Saudi Arabia's king and crown prince about the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who dispatched his top diplomat to address the crisis, has given Saudi Arabia the benefit of the doubt in Khashoggi's disappearance, even as U.S. lawmakers pointed the finger at the Saudi leadership, and Western pressure mounted on Riyadh to provide answers.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has said Pompeo would bring information about the case to Ankara, two weeks after Khashoggi vanished when he visited the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to collect documents for his planned marriage.
