The source stressed that the Kingdom holds the responsibility of the safety and well-being of its citizens wherever they are.
An official at Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul has dismissed a Reuters report which cited Turkish officials claiming that Saudi citizen Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate.
In a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency, the official strongly denounced "these baseless allegations" and expressed his doubt that the allegations came from Turkish officials "who know the details of the investigation or are authorised to comment on the issue."
The source also stated that a security delegation of Saudi investigators arrived in Istanbul on Saturday based upon a request by the Saudi government, and the acceptance of the Turkish authorities.
The source noted "Saudi Arabia's appreciation for the brotherly Turkish government's acceptance of the request. The delegation is there to assist in the investigations regarding the disappearance of the Saudi citizen Jamal Khashoggi".
"The source stressed that the Kingdom holds the responsibility of the safety and well-being of its citizens wherever they are, and that relevant authorities in the Kingdom are diligently following up on this matter to uncover the complete facts," the statement read.
