Turkey | Erdogan Stresses the Need to Investigate in Khashoggi and Morsi’s Death


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday stressed the need to investigate the suspicious death of the late Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and hold those involved in the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

At a press conference on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Japan, Erdogan said his country would not accept the absence of these issues from the agendas of the international community.

"All aspects of the death of former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi," who died while appearing before a court in Cairo on June 17, must be investigated, he added.

Erdogan said his country would not accept the cover-up of the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed at his consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

He called for the accountability of all those involved in the crime "from the bottom of the pyramid to the above" and urged the United Nations to play its part in this regard.

He said the Saudi crown prince should reveal Khashoggi's killers. "There is no point in looking for the perpetrators elsewhere."
The Turkish president reiterated the need to prosecute those involved in the killing of Khashoggi in Istanbul, because the crime took place there.

"We want to achieve justice all over the world and this is what we have shown in Khashoggi's murder. We will not allow this crime to be covered and covered up, and we are always putting the facts before the world." He said.
