Both King Salman and the crown prince called Mr Khashoggi's son on Sunday to express their condolences over his death, the Saudi Press Agency reports. The claim draws immediate skepticism from the kingdom's Western allies, particularly in the U.S. Congress.
On Sunday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said her country would not export arms to Saudi Arabia amid the uncertainty around Khashoggi's death.
Jubeir, the Saudi foreign minister, had extended condolences to Khashoggi's family earlier on Sunday. He also said they "don't know where the body is".
-Oct. 6: The Post, citing anonymous Turkish officials, reports Khashoggi may have been killed in the consulate in a "preplanned murder" by a Saudi team. Furthermore, police believed that a "15-man Saudi hit squad was most certainly involved". Why were 18 people arrested? Among the latest, the government of New Zealand said it would not attend, as did the head of the main banking unit of Japanese financial group MUFG.
"These things take time", al-Jubeir said.
Five Turkish employees of the consulate also gave testimony to prosecutors Monday, Turkish media reported.
The journalist's fiancee Hatice Cengiz, who was waiting outside the consulate's front entrance and raised the alarm when he didn't return, was told by a consulate guard that he may have exited the building through the back door, Khashoggi's friend Turan Kislakci told CNN.
Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who wrote critically of the kingdom's policies and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul earlier this month. "This was an operation where individuals ended up exceeding the authorities and responsibilities they had", Jubeir said on Fox.
"There obviously was a tremendous mistake made, and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up", he said, adding, "That is unacceptable in any government".
Meanwhile, Maria Adebahr, spokesperson for German's foreign ministry, said on Monday that Saudi Arabia's ambassador was invited to their ministry to convey Berlin's expectations on the matter.
And on the worldwide stage, he said other actors, including the U.S. Congress and the Europeans, will have deep misgivings about engaging with the crown prince, who is known by his initials MBS. However, this version of events was disputed by Turkish authorities who suspect that the journalist was tortured and then murdered by a team of trained men who cut up his body and disposed of it. The existence of such evidence has been reported in Turkish media in a series of leaks, though Turkish officials have yet to confirm they have recordings.
But the U.S. president said that, although sanctions were a possibility, halting an arms deal would "hurt us more than it would hurt them". His comment came when asked about his previous statement he would be considering severe consequences for Saudi Arabia following the journalist's death.
In a Washington Post interview on Saturday, US President Donald Trump saidthere had been "deception" and "lies" in Saudi Arabia's explanation, having previously said he found their narrative to be credible. Retno said the visit was scheduled after the Saudi monarch visited Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim-majority nation, in March past year. Speaking late Saturday after a campaign rally in Nevada, Trump said he needs to learn more about the killing and will be working with Congress on the United States response.
The President also said that a monthlong investigation into Khashoggi's death, which the Saudis requested on Friday, would be too long.
In a joint statement, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian and Germany's Heiko Maas called for "credible facts" about what happened to Mr Khashoggi.
