Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday called for Saudi Arabia's chief prosecutor, who was visiting the consulate in Istanbul where Jamal Khashoggi was murdered, to investigate who ordered the hit on the journalist.
Saudi officials shifted their story last week after evidence from Turkey revealed that the killing was in fact premeditated.
"Now we have to solve this case".
Al-Mojeb wouldn't answer some of the key questions Turkey asked, the statement said, including: Where is Khashoggi's body? Unnamed Saudi officials previously claimed that Khashoggi's body was wrapped up in some kind of fabric and given to a local Turkish coconspirator.
Erdogan said the prosecutor repeated to his Saudi counterpart Turkey's extradition request for 18 suspects detained in Saudi Arabia for the October 2 killing to be put on trial in Istanbul. Riyadh has refused the request.
No concerns over fresh United States sanctions: Iran
Iran said it does not fear the impending USA sanctions that are set to go into effect next week. Pompeo said that President Donald Trump was very clear about the policy against Iran.
He had entered the consulate to sort out documents for their marriage.
United States President Donald Trump has also come under huge pressure for his support for Riyadh, which is a key cog to the US' interests in the Middle East. Singling out Trump, she urged him to "help reveal the truth and ensure justice be served". "He should not allow my fiance's murder to be covered up".
Riyadh has said that the journalist was murdered in the building in what was a rogue operation, and Saudi authorities have arrested 18 individuals in connection with his death.
Those allegations were a key reason for the USA withdrawal - with the backing of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Israel - from the 2015 global agreement that curbed Iran's nuclear program and for the re-imposition of crippling economic sanctions.
Saudi Arabia changed its story several times, before admitting he died in the consulate and evidence showed the killing was premeditated. "I think people have assigned blame to Saudi Arabia with such certainty before the investigation is complete".
Foreign minister Adel al Jubeir has described the worldwide outcry over the killing as "hysterical" - and told critics they should should wait until Riyadh has completed its investigation before ascribing blame.
