RIYADH: Saudi Arabia has “extended appreciation” to the US administration among others for “refraining from jumping to conclusions” in the ongoing investigation in the Jamal Koshaggi case.
A tweet from the Saudi Arabian embassy in the US on Sunday said: “To help clarify recently issued Saudi statement, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia extends it appreciation to all, including the US administration, for refraining from jumping to conclusions on the ongoing investigation.”


The tweet came after the Kingdom issued a statement earlier in the day, which said that Saudi Arabia would reject any threats and attempts to undermine it, and would respond with “greater action” to any sanctions or action taken against the Kingdom.
The statement went on to say: “Whether by waving economic sanctions, using political pressure, or repeating false accusations that will undermine the Kingdom.”
“The government and the people are steadfast, dear as ever, no matter what the circumstances and whatever the pressure is.”
The statement added: “The Kingdom’s economy has an influential and vital role in the global economy.”
