U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday denounced Saudi handling of the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, calling it the "worst cover-up ever", as Washington was revoking visas of Saudi officials involved in the case.
The crown prince, Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler, said, "Those behind this crime will be held accountable.in the end justice will prevail".
The investment conference, dubbed "Davos in the desert", aimed at drawing foreign investors to help Riyadh diversify its oil-reliant economy.
"If these individuals now have visas, those visas will be revoked today", May said, adding that she will be speaking to Saudi's King Salman later Wednesday.
However, French reaction has been relatively guarded, as Paris tries to retain its influence with Riyadh and protect commercial relations spanning energy, finance and arms sales.
Erdogan told Turkish lawmakers "Saudi Arabia has taken an important step by admitting the murder".
Khashoggi, a contributor to The Washington Post who had written columns critical of the Saudi leadership over the previous year, had gone to the consulate on the afternoon of October 2 to obtain documents that would allow him to remarry.
The former Labour leader is refusing to suspend the deal despite Saudi Arabia's role in the death of Khashoggi and continued war in Yemen.
Pro-government media reported yesterday that Turkish intelligence has shared "all the evidence" over the murder of Khashoggi with the CIA chief during a visit.
Representatives of the CIA and Turkish intelligence have declined to comment on Haspel's review of the recording. Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday that Britain would prevent all suspects in the killing from entering the country, shortly before she spoke to King Salman.
There have been persistent calls for Trump to terminate multimillion arms deals with Saudi Arabia, including from within his own party.

Early Tuesday morning, Salt Lake police learned Rowland was near the historic Trinity African Methodist Episcopal Church at 239 E. KSL-TV and the Salt Lake Tribune reported that authorities confirmed a female student was found dead in a vehicle on the campus.
Turkey dismissed the Saudi assertion of an accidental death and has pressed the kingdom to concede Khashoggi was deliberately targeted for death. He called the killing of Khashoggi a "heinous crime". "The incident will be revealed entirely", he said.
The seemingly clumsy cover-up of the killing has been exposed to the world with Turkish leaks of information, security camera footage and, eventually, Saudi acknowledgements that Khashoggi died in the consulate. "At least five members of the execution team are (Mohammed bin) Salman's right hands and are people that wouldn't act without his knowledge", Ilnur Cevik, one of several advisers to Erdogan, wrote in the Yeni Birlik newspaper.
Mr Haq said that did not constitute a formal request from Turkey's government, which Mr Guterres would need to consider authorising an worldwide investigation.
Khashoggi's death has severely dented the worldwide reputation of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. But the USA president suggested responsibility lay higher up.
Trump told The Wall Street Journal, "Well, the prince is running things over there more so at this stage".
"This brutal murder of a journalist, of an innocent man or a dissent will not go without an American response" Pence said, adding that there probably would be an worldwide response as well.
Prince Mohammed promised on Wednesday that the killers would be brought to justice, in his first public comments on the matter.
Chantal Sorel, the company's executive vice-president and managing director of capital, was a speaker at last year's conference.
The prince, faced with mounting global censure, appeared relaxed as he shared the stage with Lebanon's prime minister-designate Saad Hariri and Bahrain's Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad.
If their involvement was proven, Trump said: "I would be very upset about it". Saudi officials had earlier refused to allow them to search.
