Baghdad ( Saudi State Minister of Foreign Affairs, Adel al-Jubeir, has labelled a piece by New York Times, claiming that  the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi was premeditated by Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman, as “baseless”.

Khashoggi, a vocal Saudi critic of the royal family’s policies, disappeared in his country’s consulate in Istanbul in October 2018. Riyahd initially stressed he had left the consulate, but later confessed that a team of its investigators questioned him there but a spat between both sides ended with his death. His dead body remains missing.

On Thursday, New York Times said ” bin Salman  told a top aide in a conversation in 2017 that he would use “a bullet” on Jamal Khashoggi if he did not return to the kingdom and end his criticism of the Saudi government”, citing  “current and former American and foreign officials with direct knowledge of intelligence reports”.

Saudi -owned Al-Arabiya quoted al-Jubeir, who was foreign minister at the time of the murder, saying, while at the the U.S.A on Friday, that the article by New York Times, drew a “baseless” connection between the crown prince and the murder. He said he would not comment on the article since it “relied on unnamed sources”.

He said his country would prosecute those behind the murder.

Riyahd had already apprehended former security and intelligence officers linked to the botched questioning that led to Khashoggi’s death.

  1. It is baseless garbage. You have to figure who it is coming from though. United States journalism is all baseless lies. Look how they fail to produce media that might show people how the war in Iraq is raging out of control. How can people judge their so called leadership based on the ineptitude of his decisions when the media in the United States refuses to do their jobs? They should all be fired, from a cannon into a brick wall. I personally hate the United States and all of it’s allies. The entire form of government is based on a system that is subversive to the law of Torah, the law of GOD. We have to be careful and remember that these subversives like the United States are out to destroy imperialism in any form because it says in Torah that GOD will choose our king, not our democracy. They will try to kill all of the Hebrews again as well with another versailles treaty in order to put false constraints on the economy, blame the Hebrews and cause the rise of a new N**i regime! Trials for the entire United Nations and all of their leaders as well as all of the leaders of all democracy and communism! They are all terrorist regimes!
