Kremlin sees no grounds to question the Saudi Royal Family’s statements on its non-involvement in the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said. He dismissed as inappropriate reporters’ question whether the Kremlin believed the Saudi Royal Family was not involved in the journalist’s murder. “There is the king’s official statement, there is the crown prince’s official statement. Actually, no one should have any grounds not to believe (them),” the Kremlin spokesman stressed. According to Peskov, the Kremlin welcomes Riyadh’s determination to thoroughly investigate Khashoggi’s murder. “Russia’s stance has been outlined by [President Vladimir] Putin. We heard the Royal Family’s statements condemning this murder, stressing that the Royal Family was not involved in that. All the rest is a matter of investigation, and the Royal Family itself wants that too. We welcome that,” he stressed.
