The comments come as Saudi Arabia's chief public prosecutor is in Istanbul to meet with Turkish authorities as part of the ongoing investigation.

Mr Khashoggi's death has escalated into a crisis for Saudi Arabia, the world's top oil exporter, which at first denied any knowledge of or role in his disappearance on 2 October.

Erdogan said the prosecutor repeated to his Saudi counterpart Turkey's extradition request for 18 suspects detained in Saudi Arabia for the October 2 killing to be put on trial in Istanbul. It is also pressing Saudi Arabia for information concerning the whereabouts of Khashoggi's remains, which still haven't been found.

Jamal Khashoggi, 59, was a staunch critic of Kingdom's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Hurriyet newspaper columnist Abdulkadir Selvi, who is known to be close to the Turkish government, said the Saudi prosecutor revealed nothing new to Turkish investigators during his three-day visit and left with several questions unanswered.

"Yesterday, our prosecutor told the Saudi prosecutor that the prosecution could be carried out in Turkey since the location of the crime is Istanbul", Erdogan said at Turkey's parliament.

Mr Khashoggi, a Saudi national working for the U.S. press, was a well-known critic of his home country's rulers.

According to Turkish officials, Khashoggi was attacked the moment he entered the consulate, his fingers were severed, and he was injected with a drug before being dismembered by an autopsy specialist who arrived in Istanbul with a bone saw, wrote the board. Cengiz raised an alarm after Khashoggi failed to re-emerge from the Saudi consulate.

Meanwhile, the fiancee of Jamal Khashoggi has expressed displeasure at US President Donald Trump's response to the killing in Istanbul.

He was last seen entering the building of the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul.

Saudi Arabia's attorney general admitted Thursday that evidence shared by Turkish officials suggests that Khashoggi's killing was "premeditated".
