Khashoggi's fiancée says she has declined an invitation to the White House from US President Donald Trump, accusing him of not being honest about investigating the killing.

"I demand that all those involved in this savagery from the highest to the lowest levels are punished and brought to justice", she told Haberturk TV.

Turkish officials say his father Jamal, a Washington Post columnist who was critical of Saudi Arabia's crown prince, was killed October 2 when he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by Saudi agents.

"We never questioned the wisdom of Oman's Sultan Qaboos to contribute to Israel-Palestine issue and we wish him well in his effort", Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed said. "Twenty-five days have passed and we die every day".

Erdogan on Wednesday spoke on the phone with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the first time since the murder.

Saudi Arabia's foreign minister wants everyone to just chill about Jamal Khashoggi, the journalist who was allegedly tortured, murdered and dismembered in a Saudi consulate earlier this month.

President Donald Trump has hardened his stance on the matter in the past week, calling it the "worst cover-up in history", while at the same time emphasising Saudi Arabia's role as America's most important Arab ally and the value of USA arms sales to the country.

Cengiz said in the interview she has not yet received any condolence calls from the government of Saudi Arabia. She feared he was being "very political" and she would go when the United States was honest about solving Mr Khashoggi's death.

Turkish Hurriyet newspaper reported that the police tried to empty the water from a well located in the residence, but the Saudi authorities refused to allow access to firefighters because they did not appear on a previously agreed list of names.

They chose the consulate, where the 59-year-old Washington Post contributor was killed on October 2, to hold the first gathering of the newly-formed Jamal Khashoggi Friends Association.

Adel al-Jubeir told a security forum hosted by the International Institute for Strategic Studies in Bahrain that people were blaming Saudi Arabia prematurely.

In another change to the Saudis' evolving explanation for the killing, prosecutors now say the killing was premeditated. It had previously claimed he left the consulate alive.

She said she had not been contacted by any Saudi officials but that she was unlikely to go to Saudi Arabia for a funeral, should Khashoggi's missing body eventually be found.

"With our collective interests in peace and unwavering respect for human rights in mind, the murder of Jamal Khashoggi in a diplomatic facility must concern us all", Gen Mattis said.

Cengiz added that she wasn't sure how the Trump administration's conscience was affected by what happened. He called them "childish statements. not compatible with the seriousness of a nation state".

Erdogan's comments to ruling party officials in Ankara marked Turkey's latest attempt to press Saudi Arabia on a crime that has drawn global condemnation and has prompted countries to re evaluate their ties with the Middle East power.
