Erdogan: Turkey shared Khashoggi tapes with Saudi, US and others

Erdogan: Turkey shared Khashoggi tapes with Saudi, US and others

One of the most prominent points of contention between the Saudi and Turkish teams investigating Khashoggi's murder has been the kingdom's refusal to reveal the location of the journalist's remains.

Samples taken from the drains at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul showed traces of acid, pro-government daily Sabah said, without quoting sources. An adviser to the president has said the body was cut up for disposal, and Vice President Fuat Oktay has called for an investigation into reports that it was then dissolved in acid.

Khashoggi's body has not been found and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Edrogan has suggested that it may have been dissolved in acid.

According to Turkish officials, the recordings prove that Khashoggi's murder was premeditated.

"Saudi Arabia needs to accept that (the killer) is among the 18 and needs to get rid of the suspicion by responding to Turkey's good will and acting fairly", Erdogan said.

Cavusoglu said Tuesday that after multiple conversations with Saudi King Salman, President Erdogan was convinced the king was not involved.

The official confirmation will increase the pressure on President Donald Trump and other Western leaders to demand accountability for the killing, specifically from Saudi Arabia.

Some teams had imposed "two-drink limits", he said, while others had introduced a ticketing system to stop alcohol flowing freely. Reacting to the announcements, the organisers of last week's Google Walkout said the pledges proved "collective action works".

One said he had been told directly by Erdogan that the killers took 7.5 minutes to choke Khashoggi.

A senior German official said that the head of the Federal Intelligence Service received a briefing and listened to the audio recording during a trip to Ankara.

Some were members of a death outfit known as the Tiger Squad, a team of assassins with close ties to MBS that is used to muzzle dissenters, MEE discovered.

Saudi chief prosecutor Mojeb Al Saud travelled to Turkey in late October to discuss the investigation but Mr Erdogan later accused Saudi authorities of refusing to answer questions about the killing, such as who ordered it, the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body, and the identity of a "local collaborator" alleged to have helped dispose of it.

Khashoggi was killed by a team of 15 Saudis nearly immediately after walking into his country's consulate in Istanbul to obtain documents he required to remarry. "In consultation with the United States" it had requested the end of in-flight refueling, Saudi Arabia said.

The two leaders also warned against further destabilisation of the Middle East as a result of the affair and expressed the hope that it could create an opportunity for a resolution to the war in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition has been fighting Iran-backed Houthi rebels.
