Eight weeks since the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, U.S. President Donald Trump's unwavering support for the kingdom's powerful crown prince has left Turkey in a bind.Turkey's dilemma comes to a head this week at the G-20 summit of the world's main economies, where President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman could meet, according to Turkish officials.Nearly two months since Khashoggi was killed and his body dismembered by a team of 15 Saudi agents, Western powers have taken little action against Saudi Arabia, a big buyer of Western arms and a strategic ally of Washington.Bolstered by Trump's support, Saudi officials have insisted that Prince Mohammad did not know in advance about the hit, and Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir said last week Turkish authorities had told Saudi officials that they were not accusing the crown prince of involvement.Saudi Arabia's official news agency said trade ministers from the two countries met in Istanbul Wednesday and would encourage Saudi investment in Turkey, and Turkish companies to take part in projects in Saudi Arabia.
