Erdogan has said the killing was ordered by the highest level of Saudi leadership but probably not by King Salman, putting the spotlight instead on the 33-year-old crown prince.

Here in Buenos Aires, where the G20 Summit is taking place and specifically in the hall allotted for the media that transmit the G20 Summit events live, the Crown Prince's image appeared on the screen and many cameramen hurried to take his pictures using their cameras while others took pictures using their mobiles. Trump administration officials on Sunday continued to stress that point and emphasised the importance of the United States' maintaining a close relationship with Saudi Arabia.

Russian Federation has refrained from criticising Saudi Arabia or the crown prince over the killing. "There is no direct reporting connecting the crown prince to the order to murder Jamal Khashoggi", Al Jazeera quoted Pompeo as saying.

Saudi Arabia has said that 21 people are in custody and vowed to keep probing the killing of Khashoggi, who was killed and dismembered after visiting the kingdom's Istanbul consulate to handle paperwork for his planned wedding.

President Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday that Turkey's insistence on finding the truth behind the recent killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi was not aimed at damaging the Saudi royal family.

But Bob Corker, the outgoing Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in an interview published on Friday that the United States needed to rein in Prince Mohammed, who was "out of control".

"We have never seen this as a political issue", Erdogan said.

British officials said trade was not on the agenda for the talks with the Saudi heir apparent, known as MBS. "We certainly need to continue to explore. all aspects of the murder and find anyone who was involved, but that should not in any way dissuade us from basically confronting Iran", which the Trump administration views as its major adversary in the Middle East and one that Saudi Arabia is essential to confronting.

The Saudi journalist was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October.

Trudeau said he also brought up the need for better answers on the killing of journalist Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the ongoing imprisonment of Raif Badawi, as well as the need for an immediate ceasefire and humanitarian aid in Yemen.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman sent at least 11 messages to the adviser who oversaw the effort to kill Jamal Khashoggi in the hours around the journalist's killing, according to a classified Central Intelligence Agency report obtained by The Wall Street Journal.

But Trudeau said his biggest concern was the situation in Yemen, where a humanitarian crisis is unfolding in the midst of a long, destructive war between a Saudi-led coalition supporting the Yemeni government and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.
