Saudi Arabia has rejected the resolution of the US Senate blaming the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The declaration of the kingdom, issued on Monday morning, is an unusually strong disapproval of the senate.
Saudi Arabia said that the resolution & # 39; blatant interferences & # 39; contained in its internal affairs and undermined its regional and international role.
& # 39; The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia rejects the position recently expressed by the Senate of the United States, based on unsubstantiated allegations and allegations, & # 39; according to the statement.

It went on against the Senate because it 'undermined' the regional and international role of the Kingdom & # 39; and tried to undermine his sovereignty or to reduce his status & # 39 ;.
The Kingdom has previously claimed that the murder of Saudi citizen Jamal Khashoggi is a deplorable crime that does not reflect the kingdom policy or its institutions and reaffirms its rejection of attempts to get the matter out of the way of justice in the Kingdom, & # 39; the statement continued.
The Kingdom hopes that it will not be involved in domestic political debates in the United States of America, in order to prevent any ramifications on the ties between the two countries that could have significant negative consequences for this important strategic relationship. & # 39; ;
The Senate adopted Thursday a resolution in which he said that the Saudi Crown Prince was responsible for the killing of Khashoggi in what was seen as a reprimand by President Donald Trump.
Legislators have unanimously adopted the resolution states that the Senate Crown Prince was responsible for the killing of Khashoggi and calls on the Saudi Government to take appropriate accountability & # 39; to those responsible.
It is unclear whether the House will consider the measure condemning MBS – the prince known under his initials – for the death of Khashoggi.
The lower chamber would have to approve it before it can be sent to the White House for Trump's signature.

I am absolutely convinced that if the crown prince came here in the United States for a jury, he would be found guilty within 30 minutes & # 39 ;, said the Republican Sen. Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Committee for Foreign Affairs. Relations, on the Senate floor.
& # 39; I absolutely believe that he directed it. I believe he checked it. And I believe he is responsible for it. & # 39;
The vote came because Trump remained neutral about who is the culprit for the death of Khashoggi.
& # 39; He is the leader of Saudi Arabia. They have been a very good ally, "Trump told Reuters about the prince on Tuesday and said that – & # 39; at this moment & # 39; – sticking to Saudi Arabia means that you are at the crown prince.
Trump also praised the Middle Eastern nation for the millions that it spends in the United States. His administration lobbied against the resolution.
Defense minister James Mattis and Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo went to Capitol Hill to inform senators and personally urged them to oppose it.
But the twofold, unanimous vote in the Senate puts pressure on Parliament to follow this example.
US intelligence officials have concluded that Prince bin Salman should at least be aware of the plot.

The resolution came after senators adopted a separate measure calling for the end of US aid to the Saudi war in Yemen.
Senators voted 56 against 41 to put an end to US participation in the Saudi-led campaign in Yemen by appealing to the War Powers Resolution – the first time a convention room ever did so.
Today we tell the despotic regime in Saudi Arabia that we will not be part of their military adventurism, said Sen. Bernie Sanders, a main sponsor of the resolution, before the vote.
That resolution calls the war in Yemen a & # 39; humanitarian crisis & # 39; and demands that all parties immediately seek a truce. It also requires the president to withdraw any troops or influence Yemen within 30 days unless they fight Al Qaeda.
The votes come two months after the murder of the journalist in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and after Trump has weakened over the guilty party.
Frustration with the Crown Prince and the White House prompted several Republicans to support Yemen's resolution, a reproach from the old ally.
