BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – Saudi Arabia will not extradite the 18 suspects wanted by Turkey in connection to the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi on October 2nd.
During his press conference in the Bahraini capital on Saturday morning, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Jubeir said that his Gulf nation will not comply with the demands from the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
“The individuals are Saudi nationals. They’re detained in Saudi Arabia, and the investigation is in Saudi Arabia, and they will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia,” Jubeir said.
The Saudi Foreign Minister would then criticize the international media’s constant coverage of the Khashoggi murder, which he contends is overblown.
Jubeir would then conclude his speech by claiming Iran has a “vision of darkness” and that Saudi Arabia is the beacon of ‘light’ against the Persian Gulf nation.
