DUBAI – Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has promised to cooperate with Turkey in the investigation into the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Khashoggi was killed while in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. According to a Saudi official who refused to be identified, Khashoggi was killed by a team of 15 Saudi operatives.
The Saudi team reportedly wrote a false report saying that they allowed the journalist to leave the consulate once he warned that Turkish authorities could get involved.
Prince Mohammed described Khashoggi’s case as a “heinous crime that cannot be justified”.
“The crime was really painful to all Saudis and I believe it is painful to every human in the world,” the prince said.
“Many people are using this painful thing to drive a wedge between Saudi Arabia and Turkey,” he added, promising an investigation into the case.
