US denies reaching a conclusion on responsibility for Khashoggi’s death

Published: Updated:

The State Department on Saturday said the United States government has not made a final conclusion on who was involved in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

“Recent reports indicating that the US government has made a final conclusion are inaccurate,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement.

Nauert said the State Department will continue to seek facts and work with other countries to hold those involved in the journalist’s killing accountable “while maintaining the important strategic relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia.”

US President Donald Trump said Saturday, that United States will make final conclusions by early next week over the killing of Jamal Khashoggi.

Speaking to reporters in Malibu, California after surveying damage from wildfires, Trump said "we'll be having a very full report over the next two days, probably Monday or Tuesday."

Also, the Saudi ambassador to the United States, Prince Khalid bin Salman, requested information from the US government to prove flase claims reported by American media led by The Washington Post stating that he had a phone call with Jamal Khashoggi before his death.

Prince Khalid said that the last contact I had “with Mr. Khashoggi was via text on Oct 26 2017.”
