Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi speaks during a press conference

Salman said he was willing to resort to violence if the US-based Khashoggi - who rankled Saudi royalty with his critiques of the kingdom - didn't back down and return to Saudi Arabia, the report said.

Cengiz, a Turkish researcher, had waited outside the Istanbul consulate for hours on the day Khashoggi was killed and alerted the authorities and media when he did not leave.

Under the Magnitsky Act, the president has 120 days to respond to a direct request from Congress about possible violations. "That is not a recipe for reform in Saudi Arabia - and he needs to do something about that".

Almost four months on, Khashoggi's body has not been recovered.

"Over the past four months, the Saudi authorities have been less than forthcoming in their dealings with their Turkish counterparts and the global community", Altun said in a written statement to Reuters.

U.S. intelligence agencies believe Crown Prince Mohammed ordered an operation to kill Mr Khashoggi, a critic and Washington Post columnist, and say his body was dismembered and moved to a location still publicly unknown.

The murder was met with worldwide outrage and considerably hurt the image of the crown prince.

Callamard did not name any specific Saudi state officials in her statement.

The administration has said it continues to investigate the killing. "It's an American commitment ... and we'll do it".

Turkey's efforts to reveal the truth behind the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi avoided a cover-up of the incident by the kingdom, Turkish Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gül has said.

"The law is clear", Pachon said in a statement emailed to Anadolu Agency. Bob Menendez of New Jersey and Republican Sen.

Saudi Arabia has been the driving force behind the Arab Peace Initiative, a proposal it originally introduced in 2002 that would extend diplomatic recognition by all Arab states of Israel in exchange for a pullout to the pre-1967 armistice lines and "just solution" for Palestinian refugees.

The killing of Khashoggi did result in an worldwide uproar and criticism of Riyadh. "However, when we lose our moral voice, we lose our strongest asset".

But no definitive action was expected on Friday from the administration. He repeated his government's insistence that the crown prince "did not order this". Riyadh later shifted its account of events again, admitting that the murder was premeditated but carried out as a "rogue operation". "And that's why they're charged", he said of the 11 unnamed Saudis on trial in Riyadh. "I don't know if he is still alive or that he is not alive", he said.

"Judge us when it's complete", he said.

He declined to disclose the names of those standing trial in Saudi Arabia for the killing, but said sessions had been attended by representatives of the five members of the UN Security Council. It's a horrific crime.
