If journalist Jamal Khasogi issues anonymity, Riyadh will take counter-measures if any country imposes sanctions on Saudi Arabia. According to an official on Sunday, Saudi Arabia’s official news agency SPA told the official said, “The Saudi economy has an important and dominant role in the global economy.” Any action taken against Saudi Arabia will be taken even greater action for the country, the official said. He said, “The state is completely rejecting any threat and humiliation efforts including economic sanctions, political pressure or repeated repetition of false accusations.”
On October 2, Khushogi made his Turkish fiancé stand out and entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. The Saudi national Khushogi went there to collect his first marriage divorce papers.
On that day, his fiancé said, after leaving the consulate, Khushoggi did not leave. Turkey claims that his body was removed after killing Khashogi inside the consulate building.
But Saudi Arabia blamed Turkey’s claim as a “false and baseless allegation”. Saudi has been under pressure from allies in this incident.
