Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir reaffirmed on Tuesday the kingdom's commitment to a "comprehensive investigation" into the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey.

Saudi Arabia had sent a team to Turkey and all those responsible for the journalist's death would be detained, the minister told a news conference in Indonesia. Jubeir said "necessary measures will be taken to ensure that what happened is not repeated."

Must ‘never happen again’


The killing of a critic like Jamal Khashoggi is something that must “never happen again”, Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said Tuesday, as he pledged a "thorough and complete" investigation into the journalist’s death.

“I express the commitment (of the government)...to see to it that the investigation is thorough and complete and that the truth is revealed and those responsible will be held to account,” he told reporters after meeting with his Indonesian counterpart in Jakarta.

“And that mechanism and procedures are put in place to ensure that something like this can never happen again.”
