DUBAI, Oct 15 (Reuters) – Iran said on Monday it will adopt a wait-and-see approach to the case of prominent critic of Tehran’s arch rival Saudi Arabia Jamal Khashoggi, who disappeared on Oct. 2 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

“We prefer to wait until more details and facts are revealed … It is too early to comment,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi told a news conference, broadcast live on state TV.
