Before Or After? US Energy Dept's Rick Perry Unaware Of Saudi Nuke-Khashoggi Timeline

Journalist, Saudi citizen and U.S. resident Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul last October.

Intelligence agencies believe Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman was behind the killing.

But according to Reuters, U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry told lawmakers on Thursday he did not know whether any of the approvals he authorized for U.S. companies to sell nuclear power technology to Saudi Arabia were made after Khashoggi was murdered.

Perry told a Senate hearing he has approved six authorizations by U.S. companies to sell preliminary nuclear power technology and assistance to Saudi Arabia since November 2017.

Lawmakers from both parties have slammed the Trump administration for negotiating a deal while keeping Congress in the dark.

They worry that a program without non-proliferation safeguards could eventually lead to a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.

Concern grew after Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said last year said the kingdom would pursue nuclear weapons if its rival Iran developed them.
