Saudi Arabia slams US Senate for naming Prince MBS as ‘responsible’ for Khashoggi murder

Riyadh has denounced the US Senate resolution that blamed the Saudi Crown Prince for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, as baseless allegations and a blatant attack on the Kingdom’s sovereignty and internal affairs.

“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia rejects the position expressed recently by the US Senate, which was based upon unsubstantiated claims and allegations, and contained blatant interferences in the Kingdom’s internal affairs, undermining the Kingdom’s regional and international role,” its Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

On Thursday, the Senate unanimously passed a resolution saying it “believes Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is responsible for the murder” of the Washington Post columnist, effectively undermining the Trump administration’s effort to play down and contain the fallout from the high-profile assassination.
