Jamal Khashoggi murder: U.S. must be ‘courageous’ in speaking with Saudi Arabia, Pentagon says

U.S. Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby on Friday said that while Saudi Arabia remains a strategic partner in the region, the United States has to be “courageous enough” to speak with the Saudis about concerns over the rule of law and civil and human rights. The comments came after the Biden administration released the U.S. assessment of the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. The report said it had assessed that “Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman approved an operation in Istanbul, Turkey to capture or kill” Khashoggi.
