"Just spoke to the King of Saudi Arabia who denies any knowledge of whatever may have happened 'to our Saudi Arabian citizen, '" Trump wrote in the tweet.

USA officials have also said that the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, ordered an operation to lure Khashoggi from his home in Virginia back to Saudi Arabia and then to detain him, according to US intelligence intercepts of Saudi officials discussing the plot. I am immediately sending our Secretary of State to meet with King!' Many in D.C.do, however, rub shoulders with Washington Post columnists - of which Khashoggi was one - and thus, his apparent murder has forced many American lobbyists, corporate titans, and public officials to feign shock and concern at the revelation that the totalitarian, Islamist government of Saudi Arabia does not respect the human rights of its dissidents.

More major players in worldwide finance and industry are pulling out of a high-profile business conference in Saudi Arabia in the wake of reports that a Saudi writer critical of the government disappeared and is feared dead after entering a Saudi consulate in Turkey.

On October 2, Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to retrieve a document related to his upcoming wedding.

"There's something, you'll be surprised to hear me say that, there's something really awful and disgusting about that if that was the case".

The Saudi prosecutor has received instructions "to work quickly", so an announcement could happen within days, the Saudi official said.

But White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow says the conference will deal with terrorist financing and how to stop it, and that "at the moment", Mnuchin intends to go.

It comes as oil prices rise after Saudi Arabia issued a thinly veiled threat to cut production if the U.S. imposes sanctions amid growing global tension over the disappearance.

Saudi Arabia says it will respond to any economic sanctions
FILE - Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman waves as he meets with a visiting official in Riyadh , Saudi Arabia, April 11, 2017. The NTV channel said the delegation is composed of 11 people and had on Friday inspected the consulate in Istanbul.

The development came after Erdogan and King Salman had their first telephone talks since the controversy erupted, in what appeared to be a conciliatory conversation according to official readouts. "Khashoggi's fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, who was waiting outside the consulate, says she did not see him re-emerge".

Saudi Arabia warned Sunday it will respond to any "threats" against it as its stock market plunged following President Donald Trump's warning of "severe punishment" over the disappearance of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi.

The Saudi delegation that was due to be involved in the search and has been in Turkey since Friday arrived at Istanbul police headquarters, Turkish television said.

Turkish officials have said they believe he was killed - a claim Saudi Arabia has denied - with the controversy dealing a huge blow to the kingdom's image and efforts by its youthful crown prince to showcase a reform drive.

The statement was issued as worldwide concern grew over the writer who vanished on a visit to the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul over a week ago.

"The kingdom rejects any threats", the Saudi Press Agency reported, citing an official it didn't identify. On Monday, Riyadh's Tadawul exchange closed up 4 per cent.

Trump told CBS' "60 Minutes" on Sunday that the consequences of Saudi involvement in foul play involving the journalist would be "severe".
