EXTRA Pompeo: Saudis show 'serious commitment to determine all the facts'

By our dpa-correspondent and Europe Online    auf Facebook posten  Auf Twitter posten  
Washington (dpa) - US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the leadership in Saudi Arabia has pledged to produce a conclusion with "full transparency" regarding the case of missing Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

"My assessment from these meetings is that there is serious commitment to determine all the facts and ensure accountability, including accountability for Saudi Arabia‘s senior leaders or senior officials," Pompeo said in a statement after visiting Riyadh.

"During each of today‘s meetings the Saudi leadership strongly denied any knowledge of what took place in their consulate in Istanbul."

Pompeo is due next to travel to Turkey, where Khashoggi was last seen.
