Salman said he was willing to resort to violence if the US-based Khashoggi - who rankled Saudi royalty with his critiques of the kingdom - didn't back down and return to Saudi Arabia, the report said.

The Saudi Minister was in Washington where he met with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Some aides said they still hoped to receive it by early next week if not on Friday, but the administration said it did not feel the need to send one.

Callamard also has requested an official visit to Saudi Arabia due to "major concerns" regarding the fairness of proceedings for the 11 people facing trial there for Khashoggi's killing.

Khashoggi was assassinated in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2 previous year, where he had gone to obtain paperwork certifying his divorce with the ex-wife in order to be able to re-marry his Turkish fiancé Cengiz.

"We know that the crown prince did not order this". Trump's GOP allies in the Senate have disavowed the president's position, joining with a unanimous vote to condemn the prince as responsible for the killing.

Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir spoke to reporters as legislation was introduced in Congress to block some arms sales to the kingdom over the killing of writer Jamal Khashoggi and the widespread deaths of civilians in the war in Yemen.

Al-Jubeir said he wanted Congress to let the Saudi legal process conclude before taking action on sanctions.

"Our leadership is a red line", he said.

The deadline coincides with new embarrassing developments for the prince.
