A Turkish government official said President Recep Tayyip Erdogan would visit Riyadh on Thursday.

Iran PressAsia: Erdogan's visit to Riyadh is his first since the assassination of Saudi opposition journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

In a bizarre and thought-provoking decision on April 7, the Turkish judiciary referred the case of Jamal Khashoggi's murder to the Saudi government, which provoked internal and regional reactions in Turkey as well as the region.

Thus, Riyadh's most important request was made to Ankara to boost the political-economic relationship, which was the closing of the case of the brutal murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and by referring this case to Saudi Arabia and Ankara waiving this case, Turkey - Saudi Arabia has entered the stage of normalization of relations.

Jamal Khashoggi, a journalist critical of the Saudi regime, disappeared in October 2018 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey; By silencing and denying the incident, the Saudi regime finally announced under pressure from the international community that Khashoggi had been killed at the Saudi consulate.
