BERLIN, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Siemens Chief Executive Joe Kaeser said on Monday that he would not attend the Future Investment Initiative conference in Saudi Arabia, following the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
“Siemens is a reliable and committed partner of The Kingdom and its VISION 2030. But for now, truth needs to be found out and justice applied,” Kaeser said on Twitter.
In a statement on his motivation not to travel to the conference, which posted on his LinkedIn account, Kaeser said that he had received many e-mails urging him not to go and that only two people recommended the opposite.
