The General Secretariat of the Arab League welcomed the Royal Orders issued by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia, and the statement issued by the Attorney General regarding the case of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the UAE-based Khaleej Times newspaper reported.

"The Arab League praised in a statement today the investigations carried out by the Kingdom so far, which indicate the keenness of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to clarify the reality of events in the case and to take the necessary legal action," a statement on Saudi Press Agency read.

"The league expressed deepest condolences to the families and relatives of the Saudi journalist and reaffirmed its statement issued on 14 February on the refusal to politicise or exploit this issue by any party, including for the purpose of threatening economic sanctions or unilateral measures in any form against Saudi Arabia, which remains a key pillar of security and stability at the regional and international levels," the statement added.
