Saudi official: King’s orders are a continuation of Saudi establishing justice
An official in Saudi Arabia’s foreign ministry said on Friday that the orders and decisions taken by Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz, following the announcement of the tragic death of Jamal Khashoggi, are a continuation of the kingdom’s approach to establishing justice, according to the Saudi Press Agency.
The official source said that the kingdom’s approach is establishing justice, holding accountable whoever is responsible, and dealing with any mistakes made, especially by Saudi nationals.
King Salman’s orders included directing the Saudi attorney general to carry on with investigating the details of Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance and the reservations that followed on those involved. In addition to forming a committee to follow up on all events that happened during the period of Khashoggi’s disappearance.
The source added that the measures taken by King Salman are a reflection of the leadership’s keenness on the security of all of the kingdom’s citizens.
“It also reflects the kingdom’s will to not only take the necessary measures regarding those who were directly involved in the case of Khashoggi, but to take reformatory measures to forbid such a huge mistake from happening in the future,” the source said.
Regarding Turkey, the source said that the Saudi government appreciated the cooperation that the Turkish government showed, with the leadership of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose efforts majorly helped in the investigation around the death of Saudi citizen Jamal Khashoggi.
The source also said that the kingdom appreciates the states that waited for the investigation’s results and stayed away from speculations and allegations.
