HRVP Mogherini "We expect a thorough investigation and full transparency from the Saudi authorities on what has happened."

Q&A: On the strange disappearance of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in his country's consulate in Istanbul: does the Commission have any information on this or are you pressing anyone for answers about this?

On this, let me subscribe one hundred percent to what Secretary [of State of the United States of America, Mike] Pompeo said just a few hours ago.

We are fully aligned with the US position on this. We expect a thorough investigation and full transparency from the Saudi authorities on what has happened.
