Turkish intelligence has shared “all the evidence” over the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi with the CIA chief Gina Haspel during a visit, pro-government media reported on Wednesday.
CIA Director Gina Haspel visited the Turkish capital Ankara on Tuesday for talks with officials about the killing of Washington Post contributor Khashoggi inside Saudi Arabia’s Istanbul consulate.
Video images and audio tapes as well as evidence gathered from the consulate and the consul’s residence were shared with Haspel during the briefing at the Turkish Intelligence Organisation (MIT), Sabah newspaper reported.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has stopped short of pointing the blame at the Saudi leadership for the death of the Saudi insider-turned-critic.
But he said in a keynote speech on Tuesday that the murder was meticulously planned, demanding that all those involved brought to justice.
Khashoggi, 59, vanished on October 2 after entering the Saudi mission to obtain documents for his wedding.
