AMSTERDAM - The Dutch finance minister has scrapped plans to attend a conference in Saudi Arabia due to concerns over the disappearance of a dissident journalist, news agency ANP reported on Thursday.

Wopka Hoekstra will not attend next week's meetings in Riyadh after journalist Jamal Khashoggi went missing during a visit to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2. 

The Dutch government declined to comment.
