"I am concerned. I don't like hearing about it".
Dujarric told reporters at United Nations headquarters in NY on Monday that Guterres "has been an advocate for journalists". Right now, nobody knows anything about it, but there's some pretty bad stories going around. "I do not like it".
The Saudi writer spent past year in the U.S in self-imposed exile, after he fled the kingdom amid a crackdown on intellectuals and activists who criticized the policies of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Turkish officials have suggested Khashoggi was murdered. Riyadh denies that and claims he left the compound on his own. "The free world deserves answers".
"Our country's values should be and must be a cornerstone of our foreign policy with foes and allies alike", he said.
"You would hope that the United States would at least start asking very serious questions about what was going on, and press the Saudis for answers", Ivo Daalder, a former U.S. envoy to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, told CNN.

The official quoted by SPA underlined that Saudi Arabia was responsible for the safety and well-being of all its citizens, wherever they may be, and that its authorities "are diligently following up on this matter to uncover the complete facts".
Khashoggi is a contributor to the The Washington Post and was twice editor-in-chief of Al-Watan, a Saudi newspaper.
Khashoggi was one journalist who chose to "report the reality".
So the prospects of this changing anything, I think, are unlikely. He warned that "we are not going to put up with these disgusting prices much longer".
