The statement said that al-Mojeb and the accompanying delegation were asked where Khashoggi's body was, if there was any evidence reached by Saudi authorities on premeditated plans for the killing, and who the local accomplice mentioned by Saudi officials was.

Khashoggi's death has escalated into a crisis for Saudi Arabia, the world's top oil exporter, which at first denied any knowledge of or role in his disappearance on October 2. It also pointed to a lack of cooperation from Saudi officials in the investigation of the slaying.

The Johnson source said the Conservative MP has "denounced the murder of Jamal Khashoggi and continues to believe that the United Kingdom must hold Saudi Arabia to account for this barbaric act".

Earlier in the day he met Istanbul chief prosecutor Irfan Fidan for the second time.

France, like fellow European nation Britain, has so far condemned the death of Khashoggi but has trod carefully, wary of upsetting an ally in the Middle East that is an important economic and security partner.

Meanwhile, the fiancee of Jamal Khashoggi has expressed displeasure at US President Donald Trump's response to the killing in Istanbul.

The senators, led by Marco Rubio, said they would use the Atomic Energy Act to block any US-Saudi nuclear agreements if Mr Trump did not cut off talks.

Cengiz last week declined an invitation by the White House, criticizing Trump's statements on Khashoggi's killing.

Turkey is seeking the extradition of 18 suspects in the journalist's slaying who were detained in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia has subsequently said that Mr Khashoggi was murdered, and that it is "determined to find out all the facts".

The country is also asking Saudi Arabia to help locate Khashoggi's body, which still has not been found. Erdogan said Riyadh must disclose the identity of an alleged local collaborator said to have been involved in disposing Khashoggi's body.

Saudi chief prosecutor al-Mojeb held talks with Fidan and other Turkish officials in Istanbul this week and departed Wednesday.

Turkish media have published details on how sources say Mr Khashoggi was killed. The Saudi attorney general then acknowledged that Khashoggi was killed in a premeditated murder.

The announcement came as Saudi Arabia's chief public prosecutor, Saud al-Mojeb, on Wednesday completed inspections related to the killing of Khashoggi in Turkey.

The whereabouts of the remains of Mr Khashoggi - a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman - also remain unknown despite "good-willed efforts" by Turkey to uncover the truth, the statement added.
