image for Turkey Agrees Terms With Saudi Arabia Over Khashoggi Murder
"Thank you for, .. erm ..." "Oh, don't mention it!"

Turkey and Saudi Arabia have reached an 'amicable agreement' over the way forward in the Jamal Khashoggi case, and normal service is to be resumed immediately.

Except for Jamal Khashoggi, that is.

A high-level meeting between politicians interested in trade is all it took to resolve the situation, and by the time it was over, several millions of dollars had made several Turkish dignitaries that much more comfortable in their retirement.

In return, the Turkish authorities finally owned up and said they had absolutely NO incriminating evidence to pin Mr Khashoggi's murder on any one of the 15 special agents sent from Saudi Arabia to carry it out; nor, in the absence of a corpse, did they even believe there had been a murder. Their forensics team weren't able to find evidence of one, anyway.

The recordings of a previously-supposed murder "do not exist", they said.

Just like Jamal Khashoggi doesn't.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
