It also pointed to a lack of cooperation from Saudi officials in the investigation of the slaying.

The statement, which was distributed to Turkish news channels and read out by reporters on live television, said that Khashoggi was strangled October 2 and his body dismembered and completely destroyed.

Reports from recent days suggest that Khashoggi's remains were disposed of in the garden of the Saudi general consul's house in Istanbul. The newspaper claimed that his fingers were cut off and that he was killed by being beheaded. The release of gruesome details of the killing by anonymous Turkish officials appears created to pressure Saudi Arabia into complying with Turkey's demands and efforts at managing the crisis.

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

The two countries have announced a joint investigation of the journalist's killing in Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, although Turkey has leaked evidence to the media in an apparent effort to pressure its regional rival over the crime committed by Saudi officials.

Mr Fidan said a meeting with his Saudi counterpart on Monday yielded "no concrete results".

Washington Post columnist Khashoggi's murder has escalated into a crisis for the world's top oil exporter as Saudi Arabia's allies have reacted with outrage.

Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor Irfan Fidan said he was invited to Saudi Arabia as part of the probe.


Saudi authorities announced the arrest in the case of 18 people, whose identities are not disclosed.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Sunday that he had met Saudi Arabia's foreign minister and called for a transparent investigation into the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Turkey is demanding to know where Mr Khashoggi's body is and who gave the order for the operation to kill him.

"We expect these questions to be answered swiftly", Gul told reporters.

Celik added: "We are not blaming anyone in advance but we will not allow anything to be covered up".

Mr Khashoggi entered the consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to get the needed paperwork to marry his partner.

He went into self-imposed exile in the United States past year.

The killing of Khashoggi, a former Saudi court insider, has also focused global attention on the policies of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

Saudi reluctance to cooperate, as well as the USA investigation and Ms. Cengiz's possible meeting with Trump, complicate apparent Turkish efforts to find a resolution of the escalating crisis that would allow Saudi Arabia to save face and salvage Turkey's economic relationship with the kingdom.
