Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubair said he was surprised by the demands of the Turkish government to extradite Saudi suspects in the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
In response to a related question, Al- Jubair added that the Turkish government has not shown any cooperation or credibility with regard to possible evidence to be used in the course of the investigation of the case.
Al-Jubeir confirmed that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has shown its keenness to achieve justice in this regard by sending a Saudi delegation to coordinate and cooperate with the Turkish government in order to reach the truth. However, the Turkish government had not provided accurate and honest information to the extent that it is keen to leak uncertain information to the media. The Kingdom was looking into the investigation through the local judiciary, which was transparent and clear in the results of the declared investigation and its commitment to disclose any new issue related to the issue, which has been committed to the Kingdom from the beginning and still at this commitment.
Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir rejected the Turkish claims that Saudi defendants were being tried in the case to try them there, especially since the Turkish authorities reject this, in addition to their lack of seriousness in this case.
