Weeks before United States can sanction Khashoggi killers

Mohammed bin Salman 'told White House' Khashoggi was a dangerous Islamist

"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.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is widely believed to be the one who ordered the killing - as implicitly suggested by Erdogan in his Friday op-ed - has reportedly told the USA he considered Khashoggi to be a risky Islamist.

The prosecutor's statement that Khashoggi was killed immediately conflicts with a report by pro-government newspaper Yeni Safak earlier this month, which cited what it described as an audio recording of Khashoggi being tortured before being killed. "To claim otherwise would be ridiculous".

Turkish prosecutors plan to seek the extradition of 18 suspects in the slaying of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi so they can be prosecuted.

There is still no consensus on how Khashoggi died.

In this image from TV, Hatice Cengiz, who is Turkish, reacts during an interview on Turkish television channel HaberTurk, Oct. 26, 2018, about the day her fiance, Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi Arabia Consulate on Oct. 2, and was killed inside.

Fidan said for the first time publicly that Khashoggi was strangled shortly after he entered the consulate and that his body was later dismembered.

Turkish media had previously quoted sources as saying Turkey had audio recordings proving that Khashoggi had been tortured before being murdered.

Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post, was killed inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2. First came the insistence that the country had nothing to do with the disappearance of one of its high-profile critics. However, as worldwide pressure increased, Riyadh admitted that the killing was an error, carried out by rogue elements. Turkey wants them extradited.

He said Ankara has friendly relations with Riyadh, and he does not believe for a second that King Salman ordered the hit on Khashoggi.

The killing also strained Saudi Arabia's ties with Washington and other western allies.

The chief prosecutor's office in Istanbul said that during those meetings, Turkey and Saudi Arabia had "agreed to investigate, search and uncover all details of the event from all angles and to bring those who carried out and planned it to. justice".

"The president said we will demand accountability for those who were involved in the commission of this heinous crime". However, he also said he was unwilling to sacrifice lucrative arms deals with the country.

"I think that a way must be found to achieve both goals", Netanyahu stressed, "because the larger problem is Iran, and we have to make sure that Iran does not continue the malign activities". "In other words, we did not get the impression that they were keen on genuinely cooperating with the investigation", the official said.

The adviser, Yasin Aktay, said that's why the body of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and US resident, was cut into pieces.

Earlier, the USA called for a swift cessation of hostilities in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition has been fighting local Houthi rebels.

"The UK needs to completely re-appraise its relationship with Saudi Arabia, moving on from its failed softly-softly "engagement" approach to one where ministers raise human rights openly and frankly with their counterparts in Riyadh".
