Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs released a statement today, Feb. 26, 2021 rejecting the US Congress report on Jamal Khashoggi killing.
The Saudi government categorically rejected the findings of the report, adding that it was based on baseless information and conclusions.
A US intelligence report implicated Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in approving the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, according to a person familiar with the findings.
The Saudi-US partnership is solid. Over the last eight decades, it was based on strong foundations and mutual respect, the ministry added.
