The murder of Jamal Khashoggi should act as a wake-up call, HE the Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, HE Lolwah al-Khater said on Monday, AFP reported.
She was speaking at Chatham House, the Royal Institute for International Affairs think-tank in London.
Qatar has faith in the Turkish probe into the death of Washington Post contributor Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, she said.
Asked about the state of relations between Doha and Saudi Arabia in light of Khashoggi's death, al-Khater said: "I don't think anything has changed dramatically. We're just hoping that there is a wake-up call for everyone.
"And of course, our condolences go to the family and friends of the journalist."
She was addressing a discussion entitled "Qatar's foreign policy: balancing new alliances in a contested region".
Saudi Arabia has led a four-nation blockade against Qatar since June 2017, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism and being too close to Iran -- charges Qatar vehemently denies.
Asked what she thought Britain and other European countries should do in response, she added: "There was a joint statement that the UK, France and Germany issued and I think this statement, for the time being, summarises all the actions that everyone wants to see."
The three countries on Sunday said Saudi Arabia must clarify how Khashoggi died, and its account must be "backed by facts to be considered credible".
"We would like to see a transparent investigation," said al-Khater.
"We have faith in the legal system in Turkey and I guess everyone is anxiously waiting to hear what is going to be announced tomorrow."
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to reveal the "naked truth" about the case today.
After more than two weeks of near silence, Riyadh has admitted Khashoggi, a prominent critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman, was killed in the consulate, after he entered on October 2 to obtain some documents.
