Trump against cancelling $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia

Turks tell U.S. officials they have audio and video recordings that support conclusion Khashoggi was killed

"And maybe especially so, because this man was a reporter", Trump said.

The US president issued his firmest statement yet over the disappearance of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi. They have leaked an array of grim details, and said most recently that they have audio and video recordings of torture and death.

On October 6, Reuters, quoting Turkish government sources, reported police believe he was killed, but Riyadh denies that.

Mr Tugendhat said International Trade Secretary Liam Fox should boycott the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh later this month if Saudi involvement in Mr Khashoggi's disappearance was proved.

However, Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Saudi Arabia had not yet co-operated with Turkey on the search for Khashoggi.

"I actually think we'd be punishing ourselves if we did that".

On Thursday, Trump had said US relations with Saudi Arabia were "excellent" and he was reluctant to scuttle highly lucrative USA weapons deals with Riyadh.

The report in the pro-government Sabah daily, which could not immediately be verified, emerged after a delegation from Saudi Arabia arrived in Turkey for a joint investigation into his disappearance.

It was not clear whether United States officials have seen the footage or listened to the audio, but Turkish officials described their contents to their American counterparts, the newspaper said. The President said that Cengiz wrote "a handsome letter" to him and first lady Melania Trump and that they would welcome her.

Saudi insists Khashoggi, who entered the consulate for paperwork for his marriage to his Turkish fiancee, left the building safely but has yet to offer visual evidence of this.

The Washington Post reported earlier this week that Turkey informed USA officials about audio and video recordings suggesting the journalist had been allegedly murdered in the Saudi consulate.

He said he would be "very upset and angry if that were the case", but ruled out halting big military contracts.

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia's minister of interior, Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud bin Naif on Saturday denounced the "false accusations" being circulated in some media outlets linking the Saudi government and people to the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

A joint statement of condemnation is also being discussed by USA and European diplomats if it is confirmed that Mr Khashoggi was killed by Saudi agents.

"Yes", said Trump in a pre-released extract of a CBS 60 Minutes interview to be broadcast tonight.

Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del) said that WWE "should be taking a hard look" at its relationship Saudi Arabia in light of recent events, while Sen. "We're going to get to the bottom of it and there will be severe punishment".

"You can hear his voice and the voices of the men speaking Arabic", a separate source told the Post, which employed Mr Khashoggi as a contributing columnist.

Global business leaders are meanwhile reassessing their ties with Saudi Arabia, stoking pressure on the Gulf kingdom to explain what happened to the dissident.

On Saturday, Trump expressed concern about Khashoggi's fate and lack of answers, so many days after the journalist disappeared.
