A senior Saudi Arabian president argued Saturday that CIA’s reported assessment of Jamal Khashoggi’s death can not be trusted and that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will remain active on the world stage.
“The CIA is not necessarily the highest standard of truth or accuracy in assessing situations.” This is a plethora, “Prince Turki al-Faisal, a leading member of the royal family, told reporters in Abu Dhabi, according to Reuters.
The Prince quoted the Agency’s conclusion that Iraq had chemical weapons as “the most evident of erroneous and erroneous assessments, leading to a full-scale war with thousands killed.”
“I do not understand why the CIA is not in trial in the United States, “said al-Faisal. This is my response to their assessment of who is guilty and who is not and who did what in the consulate in Istanbul.
The CIA has concluded that the Crown Prince Mohammed ordered the operation to kill Khashoggi within the country’s consulate in Istanbul last month. Washington Post and several other sales outlets reported on the assessment last week.

” As I said, “Maybe he did, maybe he did not.” But I will say very strongly that [Saudi Arabia is] a very important ally. And if we go to a certain standard, we can not have allies with almost all countries, “said Trump on Thursday.
Al-Faisal also told The Associated Press on Saturday that world leaders at the G20 summit next week will “need to deal with” the Crown Prince and say he will stay active at the world stage despite controversy over Khashoggi’s killing .
He explained that the killing of Khashoggi is “an unacceptable event like tars and march the long story of Saudi Arabia’s own position in the world” but “we must carry it”.
Khashoggi, a Saudi nation who lives in the US and serves as a columnist for The Washington Post, was killed by a 15-member team after entering the Saudi Arabian Consulate in Istanbul on October 2. He had been critical of Saudi leadership earlier.
Saudi Arabia has accused 11 people of the death of the dissident journalist, including former adjunct intelligence chief Ahmad al-Assiri, believed to be close to the Crown Prince.
