The European Union’s top diplomat says the bloc is working with the group of seven most industrialized nations to coordinate a response to the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, AP reported.
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Tuesday that “the European Union’s reaction from now on will depend on the next steps that will be taken by the Saudi authorities.”
Mogherini told EU lawmakers that foreign ministers are working with their G7 counterparts on “further steps and statements to be taken together.” She did not go into detail about those steps.
She called on the Saudi’s “to provide all the information they have about the case and to ensure that those responsible are brought to justice.”
Lawmakers described Saudi explanations about Khashoggi’s death as a “cover-up and a “white-wash.”
