However the Saudi chief prosecutor, who visited Istanbul this week, said Saudi authorities had made no such statement about local collaborators, according to the Istanbul prosecutor's office. A month after his killing, we still do not know where his body is.

The Saudi Government initially insisted Khashoggi had left the consulate, later saying he died in an unplanned "rogue operation".

Amnesty International campaigners on Friday renamed the road outside the Saudi Arabian embassy in London as "Khashoggi Street" to mark the one-month anniversary of the dissident journalist's murder in Turkey.

"Nonetheless, I must add that our friendship with Riyadh, which goes back a long time, doesn't mean we will turn a blind eye to the premeditated murder that unfolded in front of our very eyes", he continued.

The US also fears regional stability could deteriorate if Saudi Arabia's royal court is thrust into a power struggle, a rationale for maintaining support for Mohammed, despite ongoing concerns about his lack of experience and impulsive decisions.

"As a result of our efforts, the world has learned that Khashoggi was killed in cold blood by a death squad, and it has been established that his murder was premeditated", Erdogan wrote in The Post.

His comments follow an admission by the Saudi government that its agents planned and carried out the murder of Khashoggi at its consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

"Khashoggi was killed according to a plan previously prepared and his body was dismembered and discarded", the newspaper said, citing the Turkish statement. Since then, Saudi Arabia's original story of the murder has been repeatedly altered and retrofitted to match the version of events presented by Turkish officials.

A critic of the Saudi crown prince, Khashoggi had been living in exile in the United States. It was later discovered that he had been killed while inside, as his murder sparked a major diplomatic storm.

"We now see that it wasn't just cut up, they got rid of the body by dissolving it".

The "only logical conclusion" was that those who had killed the Saudi journalist in Istanbul had destroyed his body "to leave no trace behind", he said.

"Rather than share the information he has, the Saudi prosecutor tried to learn what information and evidence Turkey has in its hands", Mr. Selvi wrote Wednesday.

Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman, in a call with US President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and National Security Advisor John Bolton, described the journalist as a "dangerous Islamist".

Netanyahu also called on other countries to support USA sanctions against Tehran. "His invitation of Turkish investigators to Saudi Arabia for more talks about the case felt like a desperate and deliberate stalling tactic".

On Thursday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated that it will probably take "weeks" before the U.S. administration gathers enough information about the perpetrators to decide on its response.

"We even returned to it a second time later in the discussion because of its importance, and were encouraged by the Crown Prince's candor in his response", Ross told The Post.
