Turkey has no intention of taking the case regarding the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi to an international court but would share information if an international investigation was launched, its foreign minister said on Thursday (October 25).

Mevlut Cavusoglu made the comments during a news conference with Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki. He also said Turkey had shared information with some parties who sought additional information.

Turkish officials suspect Khashoggi, a prominent critic of Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and columnist for the Washington Post, was killed and dismembered inside the consulate by Saudi agents on Oct. 2.

In his first public comments since Khashoggi's murder, Saudi Arabia's powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman vowed on Wednesday (October 23) that the killers would be brought to justice.
