ISTANBUL: It is now known that Saudi journalist Adnan Khashoggi has been strangled by agents during a fistfight inside Saudi diplomatic mission here.
Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al Jubeir said Sunday the kingdom did not know where the body of slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi was, despite admitting to the killing and calling it a “tremendous mistake.”
It has been insinuated that the assassination was planned well in advance and the top brass knew about it. Meanwhile, Pakistan has welcomed today the contacts between Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and their desire to continue working together to address the Jamal Khashoggi issue. “We welcome the steps taken by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Turkey to address this issue,” the Foreign Office spokesman said in a statement.
Disclosing facts to the public and bringing those responsible to justice was important in that regard, the spokesman added.
