Saudi Arabia refuses to extradite saudi nationals to Turkey in the case of the murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

It says the country’s foreign minister on Sunday at a press conference.

– We will not provide our citizens, says the minister, Adel al-Jubeir.

last week demanded Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, that Saudi Arabia extradite the people suspected of the killing of Khashoggi in Istanbul.

the chief Prosecutor in Istanbul, according to Turkish sources, Nerobet issued warrants for the arrest of a senior saudi advisor and the deputy director of one of Saudi Arabia’s intelligence services.

– I think it is interesting that a country that will not give the information to us within a legal framework, issuing warrants for arrest, says al-Jubeir.

Erdogan has accused Saudi Arabia of not being cooperative in the investigation of the sensational case.

Khashoggi was killed 2. October on Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul. Here he had arrived to get some paperwork in connection with her upcoming wedding.

Saudi Arabia has arrested 18 people and promised to investigate the matter to the bottom. But it has not made Erdogan satisfied.
