In a sign of growing pressure on Saudi Arabia, Turkey said it will announce details of its investigation into the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi on Tuesday and USA congressional leaders said the Gulf kingdom - in particular its crown prince - should face severe consequences for the death of the writer in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
Turkish authorities have put the fiancee of slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi under 24-hour police protection, the state-run Anadolu news agency said on Sunday.
Salah expressed his honest thanks to the prince for his condolences, according to the SPA.
Saudi Arabia said Monday it had no plans to repeat its harsh 1973 oil embargo, even as relations with the West sour following the killing of Saudi critic Jamal Khashoggi.
At the same time, Saudi officials have failed to answer questions about where Khashoggi's remains are and have offered inconsistent narratives for how he was killed, undermining the government's assertion that Khashoggi died after a fistfight broke out when he was confronted by agents seeking to bring him back to Riyadh while he was visiting the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.
She said: "I agree with all those who say when it comes to our already limited arms exports to Saudi Arabia, that they can not take place in the current situation".
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that on Tuesday, the same day a glitzy investment forum in Riyadh spearheaded by Prince Mohammed is to take place, that details of Khashoggi's killing "will be revealed in all its nakedness".
The newspaper says the calls went to the head of the crown prince's office, as well as a number in the United States. Turkish sources say authorities have an audio recording purportedly documenting Khashoggi's murder. "Second, there is an urgent need to clarify what happened - we are far from this having been cleared up and those responsible held to account".

Impact: While this seems like a positive move from Verizon, it still remains to be seen how effective it will be in the long term. When asked specifically if this means that they have removed the lock on Pixel 3 phones, they confirmed that to be the case.
German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Saturday that he saw "no basis for decisions in favour of arms exports to Saudi Arabia". "There obviously was a tremendous mistake made, and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up".
CNN has obtained exclusive law enforcement surveillance footage, part of the Turkish government's investigation, that appears to show the man leaving the consulate by the back door, wearing Khashoggi's clothes, a fake beard, and glasses.
Turkish authorities nearly immediately concluded that Khashoggi was targeted by a 15-man squad of Saudi agents who killed and dismembered him in the diplomatic mission.
Trump has repeatedly said over the last week that he opposes any effort to impede more than $100 billion in US arms sales to Saudi Arabia, but that he would consider sanctions on the kingdom.
This came after Saudi Arabia kidnapped Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri.
During a joint interview with Britain and France, Mrs Merkel said that she condemned the killing of Mr Khashoggi "in the strongest terms".
A leading Republican US senator said he believed the crown prince was behind the killing, adding that the Saudis had lost all credibility in their explanations of his death.
According to the senior Saudi official, the Saudi team rolled up Khashoggi's body in a rug, took it out in a consular vehicle and handed it to a "local cooperator" for disposal.
