At a government meeting Tuesday, King Salman again said that Saudi Arabia would hold those responsible for Khashoggi's death "accountable".

Saudi Arabia has claimed that Khashoggi died accidentally in a brawl at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Canada has been exporting arms to Saudi Arabia based on a 2014 contract, which is worth up to $13 billion.

Erdogan said a team of Saudi officials had planned Khashoggi's murder days in advance.

He added he's expecting a full report on Khashoggi's murder soon.

The Western security officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said they were far from having a complete picture of what happened to Khashoggi.

Mr Trump spoke hours after Turkey's president, Tayyip Erdogan, dismissed Saudi efforts to blame Mr Khashoggi's death on rogue operatives.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday that there were strong signs that the killing of prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was planned and that he was killed in a "savage way".

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said at a news conference Tuesday said the US has identified people implicated in Khashoggi's death - "including those in the intelligence services, the royal court, the foreign ministry and other Saudi ministries" - and is working to hold them accountable.

The powerful crown prince also appeared Tuesday at a glitzy investment forum boycotted by a host of global business leaders over Khashoggi's killing.

Turkish officials suspect Mr Khashoggi was killed and dismembered inside the consulate by Saudi agents.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence also condemned the killing, pledging at an event hosted by the Washington Post that "we're going to get to the bottom of it".

On Monday, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said Canada is "gravely concerned by the murder" of Khashoggi, adding there are "very important questions" about the entire relationship with Saudi Arabia.

Turkey's president says the latest Saudi explanation of journalist Jamal Khashoggi's death doesn't wash-and he's demanding answers.

He used the word "murder" 15 times in his speech to parliament.

After more than two weeks of vehemently denying Khashoggi was dead, the Saudi government on Saturday said he was killed in a fight inside the consulate and said the murder was not state-sanctioned. Reuters said on Monday that Saud al-Qahtani, an influential adviser to Bin Salman, participated in a Skype call to the room in the consulate where Khashoggi was held, telling the team to "bring me the head of the dog". The journalist has relatives still living in Saudi Arabia and three children who hold United States citizenship.

"I know that, from a certain standpoint, you could also say, 'Well, it doesn't matter, because it is a bad thing.' But we would be really hurting ourselves". "Covering up this kind of savagery will hurt the conscience of all humanity", he said, per the Washington Post.
