Turkey's Vice President Fuat Oktay stated that Turkey has given a message that no one can ever attempt to commit a murder such as the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi on its soil and those who do ‘will pay the price.’

Talking to Turkey's Anadolu Agency, Oktay said that Turkey carried out an investigation into Khashoggi's killing with ‘transparency and a serious manner.’

Turkey is looking for the person, who ordered the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi on its soil, he said.

Oktay also talked about the US sanctions on Iran and said it's ‘not meaningful and fair’ to expect all countries to obey sanctions for a country's interests.

‘We clearly expressed our stance about the US sanctions. We'll see fallouts of a statement to be made today’, he added.

‘A country has to be strong in economic, military, political and social terms in order to have stability,’ Oktay said.

‘Our fight on our borders will continue until the moment when no element threatening Turkey is left,’ Oktay said, and added that Turkey will not allow any threats or any formations anywhere.

‘Turkey won't tolerate any terrorist threat on its 911-kilometer long border with Syria,’ he added.

‘Turkey has shown its determination and done what is necessary,’ the vice president said. (QNA)
