Saudi Arabia's chief prosecutor will arrive in Turkey on Sunday as part of the investigation and will meet with Turkish counterparts, according to Erdogan.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urged Saudi Arabia last Friday to disclose who ordered Mr Khashoggi's murder, as well as the location of his body, heightening worldwide pressure on the kingdom to come clean on the case.

They are held in Saudi Arabia and the investigation is in Saudi Arabia, and they will be tried in Saudi Arabia, ' the minister said at the global conference on the Manama Dialogue, which is taking place here.

The United States froze visas for all 18 who were arrested, plus three additional Saudis who belong to the intelligence service, royal court and a government ministry, the U.S. State Department said.

Erdogan on Wednesday spoke on the phone with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the first time since the murder. I said, 'You know how to make people talk.

On Thursday, CIA Director Gina Haspel briefed President Trump on the latest developments in the investigation after a fact-finding mission to Turkey.

Saudi Arabian prosecutors have said evidence supplied by Turkey indicates that the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi was premeditated, suggesting a change from Riyadh's earlier claim that his death had been accidental. Both Mohammed and his father, King Salman, have told President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who traveled to Saudi Arabia last week, that they had no knowledge of a plot to kill Khashoggi.

"In her interview with the Turkish broadcaster", Al Jazeera's reporting noted, "Cengiz said Trump has invited her to visit the White House but said she would not go until the USA was honest in its efforts to uncover the truth behind Khashoggi's killing". Turkish media have published details of his alleged torture and decapitation.

In an interview with Turkish broadcaster Haberturk that aired Friday, Cengiz said Khashoggi was treated well during an earlier trip to the consulate on September 28. "What we say to people is wait until everything is done" then decide if the investigation was serious or not.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan said those behind the killing must be held accountable.

Mr Trump has said he is "not satisfied" with the Saudi account, but while he has floated the possibility of imposing sanctions he has also stressed the importance of the two countries' ties.

How Western allies deal with Riyadh will hinge on the extent to which they believe responsibility for Khashoggi's death lies directly with Prince Mohammed and the Saudi authorities.
