  • Iran's AMB criticises Riyadh immunity over spreading terrorism

Iranian ambassador to London said that Riyadh is long immune of criticisms of its' conducts in spreading terrorism and violating human rights.

Iran PressIran news: According to IRNA, It is for a long time that Riyadh is immune from criticism against its' role in spread of terrorism and violation of human rights, Iranian ambassador to London Hamid Baeidinejad said on Friday, adding that it seems even Saudi critics are killed daytime and outside the country.

Iranian ambassador to London referred to the disappearance of Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, and asked when the West will finally give up its' double standard approach on human rights.

Turkish officials have shared contents of video and audio recordings that reportedly contain evidence supporting claims that Saudi journalist was murdered by the Saudi government.

Recordings of Saudi consulate officials in Turkey obtained by Turkish investigators and shared with their US counterparts detail how Jamal Khashoggi was tortured, killed, and dismembered by a Saudi Arabian security team at the country's consulate in Istanbul.

According to Washington Post, It's unclear whether the US has been given direct access to the recordings, but US officials confirmed that the Donald Trump administration was made aware of their contents.

The disclosure of the new evidence concerning Khashoggi came as the Trump administration said it was awaiting a determination regarding the well-known writer and columnist’s fate, but also as Republican and Democrats intensified pressure on the White House to prepare for a “severe” response.

Khashoggi's disappearance has evolved into a full-fledged international diplomatic crisis for the Saudi government, led by Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

Salman cast himself as a progressive reformer, but the disappearance and possible murder of a critical voice against his government has thrown Salman's relationship with foreign leaders and organizations into question.

This is while Saudi Arabia says it had nothing to do with the journalist’s disappearance.
