Saudi Arabia's King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman have extended their condolences to the family and relatives of the late journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi Press Agency reported early Monday.
Kushner said it was too early to say whether Prince Mohammed, with whom he's cultivated a close relationship, had taken his advice to remain transparent in the investigation into Khashoggi's death.
After weeks of denying involvement in Khashoggi's disappearance, Saudi Arabia said that he was killed in the Istanbul consulate, saying his death was the result of a "fistfight". "His blood should lead to the prosecution of the perpetrators of this crime, who are the same perpetrators of the crime against millions of people in Yemen - that is the Saudi kingdom", said Karman, journalist and a leader of the Arab Spring in Yemen in 2011.
Khashoggi's son thanked the king and the crown prince, the report added.
The incident has damaged the kingdom's image as a future investment hub, with global business leaders from Goldman Sachs Group Inc.to Uber Technologies Inc. distancing themselves from Prince Mohammed and scrapping plans to attend his business forum this week.
"Nothing can justify this killing and we condemn it in the strongest possible terms", Germany, Britain and France said in their joint statement.
