KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Saudi Ambassador to the US Prince Khalid bin Salman has denied the Washington Post's claims that he had contact with Jamal Khashoggi before his death 

Prince Khalid bin Salman stressed that what the US newspaper, The Washington Post reported on his contact with Jamal Khashoggi before his death or his suggestion to him to go to Turkey for any reason "is not true.
He said in a tweet: “Unfortunately, the Washington Post did not print our full response. This is a serious accusation and should not be left to anonymous sources. Our full response was the following: The Ambassador met Jamal once in late September 2017 in person for a cordial discussion, and they communicated via text after the meeting, the last message sent by the Ambassador to him was on 26 of October 2017. At no time did Prince Khalid discuss anything related to going to Turkey with Jamal. Amb Prince Khalid bin Salman has never had any phone conversations with him. You are welcome to check the phone records and cell phone content to corroborate this in which case, you would have to request it from Turkish authorities; as our Public Prosecutor have numerous times to no avail. The claims in this purported assessment is false. We have and continue to hear various theories without seeing the primary basis for these speculations.” 
Prince Khalid bin Salman added: “As we told the Washington Post the last contact I had with Mr. Khashoggi was via text on Oct 26 2017. I never talked to him by phone and certainly never suggested he go to Turkey for any reason. I ask the US government to release any information regarding this claim.”
