​The Foreign Secretary has had a number of conversations (since Mr Khashoggi's death) with our Turkish counterparts. In addition, both the Foreign Secretary and the Prime Minister have raised the issue with the Saudi authorities, including King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. The UK strongly supports the Turkish investigation into the incident and has been urging Saudi Arabia to cooperate fully. We have stressed the importance of ensuring that those responsible are held to account, and that Saudi Arabia takes action to build confidence that such a deplorable incident could not happen again. We will continue to engage with Turkey and Saudi Arabia until the investigation reaches a conclusion.
