Exactly one month after the disappearance and the subsequent murder of the Washington Post columnist inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the USA has yet to issue the "severe punishment" that Donald Trump had promised if the regime's involvement in the journalist's death were confirmed.
Prince Mohammed also reportedly urged the White House to preserve the US-Saudi alliance.
After initially insisting Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, then saying he died in a brawl during an interview gone wrong, the Saudi regime has admitted he was killed by a "rogue operation" and arrested 18 people.
The two sides discussed a wide range of topics including Israel, Palestine and Saudi Arabia's relations with the US.
"This is what is understood from the prosecutor's statement", said Aktay, who was close to the journalist.
Turkey had expected Saudi Arabia to cooperate in its investigation, minister Abdulhamit Gul told reporters.
Some claimed the body was wrapped up in a rug to be transported from the scene, while others said the hit squad carried the dismembered corpse away in several bags.

Police in IN said the girl and her brothers died at the scene near Rochester, about 100 miles north of Indianapolis. Elgin Ingle, the uncle of the children who died, told ABC News in an emotional interview, referring to the driver.
It emerged this week that bin Salman called Khashoggi a "dangerous Islamist" in a phone call with advisor to Donald Trump, Jared Kushner, just before Turkish police said they believed the missing journalist was dead.
Khashoggi entered the consulate last month to get a document he needed to marry his Turkish fiancee.
Much of the information pertaining to the case has already been leaked to Turkish media, but the strengthening of Turkey's official position suggests that Ankara is unwilling to let up on rivals in Riyadh in the search for answers in Khashoggi's death.
But on Wednesday Turkey said he was strangled immediately after entering the consulate and his body dismembered "in accordance with plans made in advance". Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has also called on Riyadh to disclose the identity of an alleged local collaborator said to have been involved in disposing of Khashoggi's body.
Pompeo told a local radio station in St Louis that the United States had "deep and long-term strategic relationships" with Saudi Arabia and said "we intend to make sure that those relationships remain intact".
Interestingly, they also met the heads of Saudi Arabia's so-called Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology (Etidal) and the Muslim World League.
"The Trump administration has taken a position that is devoid of moral foundation", she wrote, adding that "there will be no cover-up".
