Saudi Foreign Minister denies crown prince's link to Khashoggi case

By The Assam Tribune

RIYADH, Nov 16: Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir has insisted that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman "absolutely" had nothing to do with the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Al-Jubeir made the statement at a press conference in Riyadh, hours after Saudi Public Prosecutor requested death penalty for five key suspects involved in Khashoggi's murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey on October 2, Xinhua reported.

The kingdom is committed to holding those involved in the murder accountable through the judiciary, and investigations into journalist's killing will continue until all questions are answered, Al-Jubeir said.

He highlighted that the defendants and the victim in the Khashoggi case are Saudis and that the incident took place on Saudi land.

The top Saudi diplomat said that there has been an attempt to politicize Khashoggi's case, which is regrettable.

"The Qatari media has launched an organized campaign against Saudi Arabia and are exploiting Khashoggi's case," Al-Jubeir noted. - IANS
