Asked to confirm whether this was true, Cavusoglu said he could not provide an exact answer but Turkey would "share documents and evidence in our hands with countries and institutions which wanted it".

But Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan charged Tuesday that Khashoggi was targeted in a meticulously planned killing - and demanded that 18 suspects detained by Saudi Arabia be extradited to Istanbul to face trial.

Britain will revoke the visas of Saudi Arabian suspects involved in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday.

Pompeo added that the U.S. would "continue to explore additional measures to hold those responsible accountable" for the heinous murder and cover-up later of the Washington Post columnist.

A day earlier, three consular officials scouted woodland outside Istanbul, where Turkish police are focusing their hunt for Mr Khashoggi's body.

Saudi prosecutors investigating the murder of activist Jamal Khashoggi are now calling his death a premeditated crime.

Riyadh has blamed a "rogue operation" and said the crown prince had no knowledge of the killing.

Turkey has been focusing on a well in the garden of Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul as part of its investigation into the killing by Saudi officials of writer Jamal Khashoggi, whose body is still missing.

Hariri, a dual Saudi citizen, has thrown his support behind MBS over the Khashoggi killing.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin met with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Riyadh on Monday to discuss American-Saudi strategic partnerships, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

"We expect transparency from Saudi Arabia about his death and its background".

The Saudis have laid out different versions of the circumstances that led to the death of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who was not seen after entering the consulate on October 2.

Faced with mounting global censure, bin Salman appeared relaxed and occasionally joked as he shared the stage with Lebanon's prime minister-designate Saad Hariri and Bahrain's Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad.

The Turkish leader has called on Riyadh to prosecute those behind the journalist's murder in Istanbul.

The mystery first unfolded through leaks by Turkish investigators.

The brutal death of Khashoggi, a USA resident and Washington Post columnist critical of the Crown Prince, has sparked global outrage and threatened relations between Riyadh and Washington as well as other Western nations.
