He told reporters in Washington that the claims were “baseless” and those involved will be held accountable.

Khashoggi was murdered inside the Saudi consulate in Turkey’s Istanbul in October 2018, and a number of top Saudi officials involved in the case were arrested.

The Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud also ordered to re-structure the intelligence authority. Last month, Saudi Public Prosecution demanded capital punishment against five out of 11 suspects in the murder case.

The operation wasn’t authorised, Al-Jubeir affirmed, highlighting “no order was given to conduct this operation.”
