Exclusive: Saudi foreign minister on Khashoggi investigation


SIDE. HERE IS THE INTERVIEW WITH AL-JUBEIR. BRET: JOINING US, ADEL AL-JUBEIR. THANKS FOR BEING HERE.>>THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME. BRET: THERE IS SCEPTICISM AROUND THE WORLD, HERE IN WASHINGTON, ALL OVER OF THE LATEST EXPLANATION ABOUT THE DISAPPEARANCE AND DEATH OF JAMAL KHASHOGGI. I WANT TO GIVE YOU A CHANCE TO LAY OUT THE LATEST EXPLANATION AND HOW YOU CAME TO THIS.>>WE HAD AN INDIVIDUAL WHO CAME TO THE CONSULATE, HE WAS APPROACHED BY THE SAUDI SECURITY TEAM. THEY TOLD US HE LEFT THE CONSULATE. THE THEY DISPATCHED A TEAM TO TURKEY. REPORTS WE WERE GETTING FROM TURKEY, THEY DIRECTED THE PUBLIC PROSECUTOR TO LAUNCH AN INVESTIGATION WHICH HE DID. HE DISCOVERED THERE WERE DISCREPANCIES. WE DISCOVERED HE WAS KILLED IN THE CONSULATE. WE DON’T KNOW IN DETAILS HOW. WE DON’T KNOW WHERE THE BODY IS. THE PROSECUTOR PUT OUT ORDERS TO DETAIN 18 INDIVIDUALS FOR QUESTIONING AND POSSIBLY FACING TRIAL. THIS IS THE FIRST STEP IN A LONG JOURNEY. WE ARE DETERMINED TO UNCOVER EVERY STONE AND FIND OUT ALL THE FACTS AND PUNISH THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS MURDER. AND WE ARE DETERMINED TO INSURE THAT THE INFORMATION WE HAVE WITH INTELLIGENCE IN THE FIELD HAS CHECKS AND BALANCES INTO SURE THIS CAN NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN. BRET: YOU SAID YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE THE BODY IS. SOMEONE OBVIOUSLY KNOWS. WAS IT CHOPPED UP AND DISMEMBERED?>>WE ARE WORK ON THIS WITH OUR TURKISH COLLEAGUES, THE PROSECUTE YEARS CONTINUING HIS QUESTIONING. WE ARE INTENT ON UNCOVERING ALL THE FACTS THAT EXIST IN THIS CASE. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THOSE RESPONSIBLE ARE HELD TO ACCOUNT. BRET: WHY DID IT TAKE 18 DAYS FOR THE SAUDI STORY GEL? FIRST IT WAS THAT HE WALKED OUT OF THE CONSULATE. THEN IT WAS SILENCE. THEN THIS FAILED EXPLANATION MINUS WHERE THE BODY IS, AND WHO ORDERED IT.>>WE HAD REPORTS THAT INDICATED THAT HE LEFT THE CONSULATE. THEN OUR INVESTIGATING TEAM IN TURKEY DISCOVERED THERE WERE ELEMENTS THAT CONTRADICTED WHAT WAS IN THE REPORT. THEN THE PUBLIC PROSECUTOR WANTS TO DO AN INVESTIGATION AND HE DETERMINED NAWBLG THERE WAS SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED THAT WAS CRIMINAL AND AS A CONSEQUENCE — WHEN YOU HAVE A SITUATION LIKE THIS YOU WANT THE INFORMATION YOU PUT OUT TO BE AS ACCURATE AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN. YOU DON’T WANT TO PUT OUT SPECULATION AND HEARSAY AND GOSSIP. THESE THINGS TAKE TIME. YOU LOOK AT THE TIMELINE BETWEEN WHEN THE INCIDENTS WERE DISCOVERED AND THE REPORT CAME OUT OF WHAT HAPPENED. THESE THINGS TAKE TIME AND YOU WANT TO BE CAREFUL. BRET: YOU ARE AN AUTHORITARIAN GOVERNMENT. YOU ARE SAYING THE CROWN PRINCE DID NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE MEMBERS OF THIS 15-PERSON TEAM THAT ARE CLOSELY ALIGNED WITH HIM?>>FIRST OF ALL, WE ARE MEAN IN THE AUTHORITARIAN GOVERNMENT. WE ARE A MONARCHY. WE HAVE OUR CHECKS AND BALANCES. THE INDIVIDUALS OUTSIDE THE AUTHORITY THERE WAS A TREMENDOUS MISTAKE MADE AND COMPOUNDED THE MISTAKE BY TRYING TO COUCH. THESE THINGS UNFORTUNATELY HAPPEN. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THOSE WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE ARE PUNISHED AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE PROCEDURES ARE IN PLACE TO PREVENT IT FROM HAPPENING AGAIN. SAUDI ARABIA SINCE THE FOUNDING OF THE MODERN SAUDI STATE WE HAVE NEVER ENGAGED IN SUCH BEHAVIOR. THIS IS AN ABERRATION, IT’S A CRIMINAL ACT AND THOSE RESPONSIBLE WILL BE PUNISHED. BRET: DID THE CROWN PRINCE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT IF THERE WERE PEOPLE CLOSELY TIED TO HIM THAT WERE CLOSELY INVOLVED IN THE OPERATION.>>THERE WERE PICTURES OF SOME SECURITY OFFICERS IN THE SECURITY DETAIL FROM TIME TO TIME. BUT THIS IS NORMAL SECURITY, PEOPLE WHO DEAL IN SECURITY DETAILS ROTATE AMONG THE OFFICIALS. HAVING SOMEBODY IN A PICTURE DOESN’T MEAN THEY ARE CLOSE AT ALL. THE CROWN PRINCE IS NOT AWARE OF THIS. THIS WAS AN OPERATION THAT WAS A ROGUE OPERATION. THIS WAS AN OPERATION WHERE INDIVIDUALS ENDED UP [INAUDIBLE] THE RESPONSIBILITIES THEY HAD. THEY TRIED TO COVER UP FOR IT. BRET WHERE WHAT DO YOU SAY — DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THE TURKS HAVE AUDIO OF WHAT HAPPENED IN THAT CONSULATE?>>I DON’T KNOW. THEY SAID THEY HAVE AUDIO, BUT WE HAVEN’T HEARD IT. AND I DON’T KNOW ANY GOVERNMENT THAT HAS ACCESS TO THOSE AUDIOTAPES. BRET: DO YOU BELIEVE THE U.S. INTELLIGENCE AGENCY HAS INTERCEPTS THAT HAS UNDERSTANDING AT A HIGH LEVEL OF THIS OPERATION?>>I DON’T KNOW. I THINK THEY WOULD HAVE TOLD US ABOUT IT. I SEE A LOT OF SPECULATION AND HEARSAY AND GOSSIP IN THE PRESS. I CAUTION PEOPLE TO LET THE INVESTIGATION UNFOLD. AND WHEN THE RESULTS COME OUT, WE’LL KNOW THE TRUTH. BRET: YOU UNDERSTAND THE SCEPTICISM, THAT THIS WAS A FIGHT THAT DEVELOPED IN THE CONSULATE, AND A 0-YEAR-OLD COLUMNIST — A 60-YEAR-OLD COLUMNIST WRITER IS GOING TO RESIST A 15-MEMBER SECURITY TEAM AND ONE OF THE MEMBERS OF THE TEAM WAS AN AUTOPSY SPECIALIST. HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THAT.>>I DON’T BELIEVE ALL 15 MEMBERS WERE IN THE CONSULATE WHEN THIS HAPPENED. WE ARE LOOKING AT EVERY INDIVIDUAL MEMBER OF THE TEAM. WE ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW THEY WERE AACCEPT THEY WERE A -CEPT THEY WERE A –EPT THEY WERE A — HT THEY WERE A — HOW THEY WERE ASSEMBLED AND DISPATCHED AND WHAT HAPPENED CONSEQUENT TO THAT. THE INITIAL RESULTS ARE NOT CONCLUSIVE. THE INVESTIGATION IS IN ITS EARLY PHASES. WE’LL PURSUE THIS TO THE END TO UNCOVER THE TRUTH TO MAKE SURE EVERYBODY KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED AND WE HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE. BRET: I’M SURE YOU HEARD LAWMAKERS SPEAKING OUT. HERE IS WHAT SENATOR RAND PAUL SAID ON “FOX NEWS SUNDAY.”>>I FEEL CERTAIN THE CROWN PRINCE WAS INVOLVED AND HE DIRECTED THIS AND WE CAN’T CONTINUE TO HAVE RELATIONS WITH HIM. HE’LL HAVE TO BE REPLACED. SANCTIONS DON’T GO FAR ENOUGH. BRET: THERE WERE A LOT OF WASHINGTON LAWMAKERS IN THE SAME BOAT. HOW DO YOU RESPOND.>>I FIND IT INTERESTING HOW SOMEONE 6,000 MILES AWAY CAN HAVE AN OPINION ON THE INCIDENT. THIS IS A JUDGMENT CALL BY SENATOR PAUL BASED ON SPECULATION. WITH RESPECT TO THE CONGRESS TO WAIT UNTIL THEY HAVE THE FACTS, THEN JUDGE THE RESULTS OF THE FACTS AND TAKE POSITIONS THEN. BUT NOT JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS BEFORE SOMETHING IS CONCLUDE. THERE IS A PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE AND PEOPLE HAVE TURNED IT UPSIDE DOWN UNFORTUNATELY. BRET: ARE YOU WORRIED THAT SOMETHING IN THIS INVESTIGATION WILL TURN UP SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN THE ORIGINAL STORY YOU PUT OUT NOW?>>WE PUT OUT THE VERSION WE HAVE BASED ON THE FACTS WE HAD AT THE TIME. WE’LL CONTINUE TO PUT OUT INFORMATION AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE AND IT IS CERTIFIED. WE HAVE BEEN CLEAR WE’LL LEAVE NO STONE UNTURNED. BRET: KING SALMAN IS STANDING BEHIND THE CROWN PRINCE ON ALL OF THIS?>>[INAUDIBLE] THE INVESTIGATION TO ASCERTAIN THE FACTS AND HOLD THOSE RESPONSIBLE ACCOUNTABLE AND DETERMINE TO PUT IN PLACE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES AND MEASURES IN THE SECURITY SERVICES TO PREVENT SOMETHING LIKE THIS FROM HAPPENING AGAIN. BRET: WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN ARRESTED SURROUNDING THIS?>>THIS IS UP TO THE COURTS TO DECIDE. THE PUBLIC PROSECUTOR WILL BRING CHARGES AS THE INVESTIGATION UNFOLDS. THEY WILL BE REFERRED TO THE COURTS AND THE COURTS WILL SENTENCE THEM. BRET: DO YOU HAVE A MESSAGE TO THE KHASHOGGI FAMILY?>>YES, THIS IS A TERRIBLE MISTAKE, A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY. WE FEEL THEIR PAIN. I WISH THIS DIDN’T HAPPEN. UNFORTUNATELY A FEW [INAUDIBLE] WAS MADE AND I ASSURE THOSE RESPONSIBLE WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS. BRET: YOU SPENT A LOT OF TIME AS AMBASSADOR TO THE U.S., NOW AS FOREIGN MINISTER. HOW CONCERNED ARE YOU ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THE U.S.-SAUDI RELATIONSHIP AFTER ALL THIS?>>[INAUDIBLE] GREAT INTERESTS THAT WE SHARE TOGETHER. WE HAVE A GREAT TRADE RELATIONSHIP. WE HAVE SECURITY ISSUES IMPORTANT TO BOTH OF US. WE WORK CLOSELY ON COMBATING TERRORISM AND EXTREMISM AND CONTAINING IRAN’S AGGRESSIVE POLICIES IN THE REGION. TRYING TO BRING PEACE TO PAKISTAN AND AFGHANISTAN. THE STRATEGIC RELATIONSHIP IS IMPORTANT FOR BOTH COUNTRIES. I BELIEVE WHEN THE INVESTIGATION IS OVER AND THE FACTS ARE REVEALED, PEOPLE KNOW WHO IS RESPONSIBLE AND SEE THOSE INDIVIDUALS PUNISHED, THAT THE

  1. The Saudis won't bend to this trap. They will search out and take care of those media people who are perpetrating this myth. God help members of the media.

  2. It's useless to talk to any of the to the saud family members , in this case the so call ambassador …..
    Any one can see a liar face , and these people have the same liar face ……
    Their eyes full of envy towards others , and full of hate , even when they smile , their smile is not sincere ……

  3. Fox news during obama era constantly told americans how horrible muslims are. And now like their orangutan in power they are sucking saudi "fanatics" greasy balls. Shame on you fox!

  4. Look , you see why God gave power strength beauty factories inventions, making stuff nuclear power , planes reaching out to the moon and stars soon and not giving any of this to us the Arab because we don't deserve it , do you imagine if Iran or Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country has the same power of USA there will be even worst than what have happened, so please USA and other major counties stop selling weapons , and control it

  5. god love for a man is a guy muslim because god created the world leader Muslim to control that why always talks all over the cosmos

  6. Anybody seen or heard any audio or video “evidence” from Turkey?
    It’s now becoming obvious Turkey wanted to lie about having them in order to have some influence over Saudi in the region.
    But I’m pretty sure Saudi Arabia is ahead if the game. Try again Turkey.

  7. I admired Adel Al Jubair as our minister during King Abdullahs reign. Horrified when rouge Iran tried to assassinate him as our ambassador in the US. But what he is saying now is not befitting to my country as custodian of Mecca and Madina. I am from Jeddah an hour from Mecca by car and lucky enough to obtain information via Internet. I have been approached by the Kings security while getting my meds. I hold no political view points in fact I rescue cats. But the Uber driver Hassan Al Zahrani insisted to give his private number. I am in no doubt he is a spy and a lazy obnoxious sod who resents the wealthy. Uneducated and evil. We are in a police state shockingly & unprecedented. Saudi is important for its oil & Islam to the rest of the world….Do not allow this regime to continue. But the octopus has stretched.its tentacles all over. Much too late. We are censored and womens Islamic rights have never existed. So help us God…

  8. All gossips, all hearsays, no actual fact, all merely speculations.
    If Philippines which is a small country did not care if that US and EU withdraw their aid.
    How much more for KSA, an oil rich country? KSA will survive!

  9. So funny how he keeps saying " this should never happen again " trying to buy us into thinking that they are the holiest! All his statements just expose how this was a well planned idea and " the boss " being the chief stratagem
    boss"

  10. We AlSaud own Mecca, so all muslims need to listen to us n follow us , we represent islam with wahabism , n follow us, n we own the petrodollar system

  11. They dont care if anyone believes. No goverment ever cares. They lie and stop talking about it. It has happened so many times. It doesnt matter how stupid, unlogical or unprobable.. Think of 9/11..

  12. Look at the face this person he looks very hypocritical, he has a poker face . He speaks like a ROBOT with no human expression on his face , how clever are SOUDI they have send a perfect man to lie

  13. Trump, Pompeo, and the GOP Congress continue to arm and support Saudi Arabia and the UAE in the continued slaughter and starvation of Yemenis. Claiming to be for human rights is a farce. They are serial murderers of children. The MSM is complicit in ignoring and even promoting the war crimes.

  14. All are targeting the Prince with out any proof… MBS had many enemies and this could be some one wanted to stop MBS vision of modernising KSA ..I don't want to pre Jude any one without any proof just because media is propagating the same and people just want to jump over it…

  15. The funny thing is that a vampire country like Saudi, which
    has numerous evidences of its crimes, as of September 11, ISIL's group of al –
    Qaeda The killing of women in Yemen. backed by
    the United States and its allies, headed by the Committee on Human Rights and
    Women's Rights. The shame of the human rights claimants (the United States and
    Europe), which you accuse of using oil dollars Iran is the only country against you.

  16. Khashoggi killing
    crime story on Turkey territory land, and a Saudi stage sponsor by
    Qatar, the actors are Saudians and the most important is the
    writer and director is Turks.

    Who is the murderer?

  17. Who ordered it? Who has the motive? What Saudi would dare do such a thing without being ordered to do so by someone at the highest level?

  18. Lying to his teeth! He is trying to cover up his princess’s mess! You’ ll all pay for your crimes in this life or another. Your billions won’t save you this time deceiver!

  19. So you don´t tolerate an investigation on Mohammed bin Salman,,,because of what, because he´s the keeper of King Salmons temples…?? He doesn´t take a dump or two a day, he doesn´t eat or what?? WTF do you people have for breakfast? You pissed in the wrong cup, we found out you did, and now you´ll face some consequenses. Everybody knows – even you – that this was planned, and it was ordered by YOU the saudi administration.

  22. Khassoggi is an Islamist with the Muslim Brotherhood. When two Islamist fight, I don't care who gets killed. It's a victory, either way.

  23. How could some Senators like Senator Linsey Graham and Senator Bib Corker know for sure, almost as if they were eyewitnesses, that prince Mohammad had ordered the assassination of Jamal Khashoggji?

  24. In Saudi justice system there are two way to sentences, either chopping the head off with a Sword or chopping the body into pieces with a chain saw. The sentence for non believers, Saudi Style, is to blow them in the markets and streets. That was a brief of Saudi justice system.

  25. And now the newest. I can not believe that a sculpture in honor of Saudi Arabia had been put in the twin towers memorial. 15 out the 19 terrorist in 9-11 were from that country. What is going on in this country?. Honesty and decency are gone because money is more powerful?.

  26. He indirectly admits that the MBS regime is responsible when the journalist asks him if he has a message to the Khashoggi family and he answers that it was a terrible mistake

  27. I like the Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia. He's handsome, seems to have a heart, and is very personable. He has natural charisma. Never noticed him before the president visited there.

  28. Who’s worse, the Saudis who murdered a journalist, or trump who ignores his own intelligence service for the sake of a few dollars?

  29. Showing Al Jazeera anchorwoman justifying the attacks on America’s Twin Towers as a result of US foreign policy.and that “millions of people around the world were celebrating”.
