Erdogan’s advisor: The Biden administration is using the Khashoggi file as a trump card against Saudi Arabia … We did not aim to put the kingdom in a difficult position.


Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – Yassin Aktay, advisor to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the ruling “Justice and Development” party, considered that US President Joe Biden’s administration is using the file of the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi as a “trump card” against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia And a “tool” to realize its own policies in the Middle East.

Aktay said, in a part of an article in the Turkish newspaper, Yeni Safak, about the report published by the American intelligence on the killing of Khashoggi, that “this report, which was ignored during the Trump era, based on dirty accounts as well, when it appears in this way in the Biden era does not bode well for anything. The situation until the new American administration works in the interest of justice or stands by it. ”

Aktay added, “On the contrary, it is clear that it is using the Khashoggi file as a trump card against Saudi Arabia.” He continued by saying, “For us, our goal was not at all from the beginning to put Saudi Arabia in a difficult situation in one way or another. Rather, the first and last goal is to achieve justice. Our religion, values, history, and rights among us are sufficient as a reference that enables us to demand that.”

Aktay, who had a friendly relationship with Khashoggi, said, “The Biden administration is not seeking justice or victory for human values ​​in the Khashoggi case. On the contrary, it wants to use this file as a tool to achieve its own policies in the Middle East. To be an appropriate reference in the world to realize the truth on any basis. ”

Aktay said, “In fact, turning Khashoggi’s case into a trump card in the hands of the United States against Saudi Arabia is a sad matter. Even more sad, is the transformation of these crimes and similar human rights violations into something routine in the Islamic world, in the absence of the establishment of a mechanism.” To achieve justice against these violations. “
