The new foreign minister of Saudi Arabia raised the voice of audacity before the international indignation over the brutal assassination of critic Jamal Khashoggi, dismissing the crisis of the kingdom and the demotion of his predecessor. After taking a vow as the foreign affair minister in a reshuffling government panel, Ibrahim Al-Assaf told to the media, “The issue of Jamal Khashoggi… really saddened us, all of us ”.

He added, “ But all in all, we are not going through a crisis, we are going through a transformation ”, mentioning to social and financial reformation led by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

The Saudi Crown Prince has confronted massive international probe over the assassination of Saudi critic Jamal Khashoggi on 2nd October in the Istanbul consulate of the kingdom – which critics claim has unleashed the oil-rich Gulf nation diplomatically.

The former finance minister Assaf who was hindered in the last year in what Riyad said was an anti-corruption move, replacing the foreign minister Adel-Al-Jubeir in the reshuffling government panel, ordered by King Salman.

Jubeir, who looked out to defend the befouled government before international aspect after the killing of Khashoggi, took a vow as state minister of the foreign affairs, which was broadly seen as a demotion.

Assaf said, “ This is far from the truth. Adel represented Saudi Arabia and will continue to represent Saudi Arabia… around the world. We complement each other.”
