When asked if the Prime Minister will condemn the Saudi Crown Prince in person on the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi,Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said “we’ll see what Japan and China said first.”

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is scheduled to visit Malaysia from Feb 17-18.

This will be his first tour to South-East Asia since he was implicated in the murder of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist, at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October 2018.

Dr Mahathir had previously condemned the killing, describing it as an act of “extreme cruelty”.
