Journo's murder lays bare Saudis' real face: Azeri analyst

Baku, Oct 31, IRNA – Jamal Khashoggi's murder by Saudi agents has revealed the real identity of the Saudi regime to the whole world, an Azeri analyst told the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on Wednesday.

'Such an incident and the crimes committed by the Saudi's in Yemen have irreparably tarnished their reputation,' said Akef Heidareli.

'Khashoggi's case and the worldwide reaction put the Saudis in an unpleasant situation,' Heidareli said.

He added that the atrocities of the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen and what is going on in Syrian, show that Riyadh support terrorism and criminal actions.

Referring to 'the US vague stance' about the issue, he said, 'This incident damaged reputation of the supporters of the Saudis, especially Washington's image.'

'Cruel murder of the journalist in Saudi consulate in Istanbul was no accident, as presently we are witnessing crimes committed by the Saudi regime in Yemen and Syria.'

He said Khashoggi's murder is the sequel of their crimes in Yemen and Syria.
