Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia has no reason to question Saudi Arabia’s statements about the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

During a press conference, Peskov said: “There is no reason that would lead anyone not to believe Saudi Arabia’s announcements,” stressing that Russia supports investigations into the case.

Sputnik news agency reported Peskov as saying, “We have heard the royal family’s statement condemning this murder… But everything else comes down to the investigations the royal family ordered, and we support all of it.”

On Thursday evening, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin spoke with King Salman bin Abdulaziz on the telephone and the two discussed “the circumstances of Khashoggi’s case,” according to Peskov.
