Hoekstra: clarifying Saudis about Khashoggi

World October 16, 2018 12:00

the hague - It is unlikely that Minister Wopke Hoekstra (Finance) will go to Saudi Arabia next week for an international investment conference. If that country does not comply with international requests for clarification about the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, or if it appears that it is involved in his death, the visit is off track.

The minister said this via a spokesman. Hoekstra already expressed his concern last week about the reports from Istanbul, where Khashoggi did not return from a visit to the Saudi consulate. 'We want to know exactly what happened,' said his spokesperson. 'Credible research is very important in this. '

Hoekstra is keeping close contact with his colleague Stef Blok (Foreign Affairs) about the issue. He also consults with foreign colleagues.
