Lebanon’s premier-designate Saad Hariri threw his support behind Saudi Arabia Tuesday following the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at its Istanbul consulate.
“The measures taken by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia regarding the case of journalist Jamal Khashoggi... come within the framework that serves the path of justice and the disclosure of the whole truth,” a statement from his office quoted him as saying.
On Tuesday, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir pledged a “thorough and complete” investigation into Khashoggi’s murder. Khashoggi disappeared after he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to collect paperwork for his marriage.
Hariri said the directives of “King Salman bin Abdulaziz would put things in the right direction and contribute to respond to the malicious campaigns targeting the kingdom”, the statement said.
