ANKARA (Sputnik) - Turkey does not want the situation with the murder of Saudi opposition journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to have a negative impact on relations between Ankara and Riyadh, Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said on Monday.

"Nothing will be concealed from the public [regarding the Khashoggi case]. Our main goal is to investigate it thoroughly. We should work together with Saudi Arabia in order to avoid [investigation] gaps. But we do not want the situation to overshadow our relations with Saudi Arabia, with which we have many projects and cooperation fields. It is our fraternal country that is why the process is very sensitive," Kalin stated.
