He argues the move will garner global notice as the conflict continues.

Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker and the panel's top Democrat, Senator Bob Menendez, said they were unable to resolve some details of a proposal to ban arms sales to Saudi Arabia and punish anyone involved in Khashoggi's killing by freezing their assets and restricting their travel.

The effort to stop American involvement in Yemen is still a long way from a done deal.

If it passes the House of Representatives, it would go to the White House for Trump to sign or veto.

In March 2015, Saudi Arabia and a coalition of its regional allies started the war against the Muslim world's poorest country, Yemen. "We also want to preserve a 70-year partnership between the United States and Saudi Arabia, and we want to ensure it continues to serve American interests and stabilizes a unsafe and critical region".

Turkey is in talks with the United Nations about a possible investigation into the murder of dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Tuesday. Corker has not released the full text of that resolution. McConnell urged senators to vote for Corker's measure, which he said "does a good job capturing bipartisan concerns about both the war in Yemen and the behavior of our Saudi partners more broadly". "Honestly, I can't comment on it because I had not heard that at all".

Regardless of the resolution's future, its Senate passage marks a key turning point in U.S. - Saudi relationships. He was killed in what US officials have described as an elaborate plot as he visited a consulate in Istanbul for marriage paperwork that was approved by Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman. President Trump made Saudi Arabia the first country he traveled to on a state visit. "This is a developing set of facts with respect to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi", he said. Thirty-nine senators, all Republicans, cast no votes on the procedural matter.
