DUBAI (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir in Riyadh on Tuesday, reporters traveling with the envoy said, to discuss the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul two weeks ago.

“The two were chatting amicably when we walked in, then they stopped talking and sat in silence till we left,” a reporter said. Pompeo is expected to meet with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman later, the reporter said.
