Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir speaks exclusively to Fox News’ Bret Baier on the ‘terrible mistake’ that happened at the Saudi consulate in Turkey and says those responsible will be held accountable.
Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister offered his condolences on Sunday to the family of a Washington Post columnist killed in the country’s consulate in Turkey almost three weeks ago, but offered no new information on how Jamal Khashoggi was killed or if the country’s crown prince was involved.
Speaking during an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said that the country is currently investigating Khashoggi’s death and that the 18 people implicated in his slaying would be punished appropriately.
