He was referring to an alleged 15-member assassination squad that Turkey believes was sent to kill Khashoggi at the consulate where he had arrived to obtain papers to marry his Turkish fiancee.

Samples taken from the drains at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul showed traces of acid, it said, without quoting sources.

Saudi Arabia had insisted for weeks after Mr Khashoggi disappeared that he had walked out of the consulate, before changing its account to say he died in a brawl.

The foreign ministry said Hunt would meet Saudi Arabia's King Salman, Prince Mohammed, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, Yemeni Vice President Ali Mohsen and Foreign Minister Khaled Al Yamani. "We gave them to Saudi Arabia, to America, to the Germans, French and the English - we gave them all".

"All these countries heard the recordings and know about them", Erdogan said.

According to earlier reports, Khashoggi's body was cut into pieces after the murder.

Late last month, a Saudi prosecutor finally admitted that Khashoggi was killed in a planned attack.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Sunday the U.S. will hold accountable all involved in the killing of a dissident Saudi journalist in a wide-ranging telephone call that also took in the conflict in Yemen.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey said his government had turned over copies of the recording to the United States as well as France, Britain, Germany and Saudi Arabia.

Cengiz especially called for the Janazah prayer to be carried out in the Prophet's Mosque in the Saudi city of Medina, Khashoggi's home city.

Trump slams Macron for ‘insulting’ plan to build up Europe’s military
Macron attempted to smooth over the divisions, saying he shared Trump's view on the need for Europe to boost defence spending. The cemetery is the final resting place of numerous 1,800 American soldiers killed in the battle of Belleau Wood .

The source said the killers dissolved the journalist's dismembered body in acid in one of the rooms at Consul General Mohammed al-Otaibi's residence. It is not clear whether there are two separate wells, one in the consulate and one in the residence.

The Saudis have arrested 18 people it accuses of involvement in the murder. Saudi Arabia only allowed Turkish police to search the building on 15 October.

Erdogan repeated a demand for information on the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body.

Prince Mohammed is controversially linked to both: he has played a direct role in overseeing Saudi Arabia's Yemen intervention and has also been accused of orchestrating the October 2 murder of Khashoggi, who was a USA resident.

The two leaders also warned against further destabilisation of the Middle East as a result of the affair and expressed the hope that it could create an opportunity for a resolution to the war in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition has been fighting Iran-backed Houthi rebels.
