"The Turkish and Qatari media have launched a powerful anti-Saudi campaign that is still underway. That is very sad because it is about a crime that is being investigated by judiciary bodies," Jubeir said at a press conference in Riyadh aired by Al-Arabiya television.
He pointed out that those responsible for the death of Khashoggi would be punished in line with the Saudi legislation.
From the minister’s point of view, some parties are trying to politicize the investigation into the murder by leaking various rumours to media.
"It would be better for everyone, if anyone possessing the information, which may clarify the situation, would share it with investigators instead of disseminating these data via media," the diplomat added.
Khashoggi disappeared on October 2 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Saudi Arabia's acknowledgement that the journalist had been killed in a fight inside the consulate came after two weeks of denials and growing pressure from the Western allies to provide explanations. Turkey, which has conducted a separate probe into the case, claims that Khashoggi was assassinated by a hit squad sent from Saudi Arabia.
