Riyadh sources stated that Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud spoke with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan about the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul. As per report from the Saudi Press Agency and the Turkish state run news agency Anadolu reported on Sunday that the countries were considering establishing a "working group" to discuss the Khashoggi case.



Meanwhile the group, which does not yet have an official date, comes amid intense international pressure on Saudi Arabia. Accordingly Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post and Saudi royal insider turned critic, went missing after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to obtain paperwork that would allow him to marry his Turkish fiancée. Furthermore his disappearance has drawn international condemnation and sparked warnings from US President Donald Trump on Saturday of "severe punishment" if the Saudis were found to be behind his death.

Accordingly Britain, France and Germany also said on Sunday they were demanding a "credible investigation" and the Turkish authorities believe 15 Saudi men who arrived in Istanbul on October 2 were connected to Khashoggi's disappearance and possible killing. Presently Saudi Arabia firmly denies any involvement in Khashoggi's disappearance and says he left the consulate that afternoon.
