Saudi Crown Prince: ‘Turkey can search Saudi consulate for Khashoggi’

Published: Updated:

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman said in an interview this week that Turkey can search the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul for Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

“The premises are sovereign territory, but we will allow them to enter and search and do whatever they want to do,” Prince Mohammed said in an interview with Bloomberg on Wednesday in Riyadh.

“We have nothing to hide,” the crown prince added, following speculation by Turkish authorities that Khashoggi was still inside the consulate when he entered on Tuesday.

Prince Mohammed said the journalist left the building not long after he entered.
