Bahrain Mirror: The US President Joe Biden revealed that he will make an announcement on Monday regarding Saudi Arabia.

His remarks came one day after the U.S. intelligence released a report about the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, formally blaming Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"There will be an announcement on Monday as to what we are going to be doing with Saudi Arabia generally," Biden said at the White House when asked if there will punishment for the crown prince.

Biden didn't give further details.

Released by the office of the Director of National Intelligence, the report concluded that bin Salman approved "to capture or kill" Khashoggi since he considered him a "threat to the kingdom" and also approved the use of violent measures if necessary to silence him.

The Saudi Foreign Ministry issued a statement rejecting the report, describing it as "negative, false and unacceptable".

It is noteworthy mentioning that the US report is not classified as confidential, but the Donald Trump's administration refused to publish it.

Khashoggi were killed on October 2, 2018 inside Al-Riyadh Consulate in Istanbul.
