"We have no intention to damage the Saudi royal family or the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but revealing the truth about the murder with all its aspects and putting all whose responsible on a trial would benefit the Saudi Arabia as well", he said.

Prince Mohammed's presence at the global summit has been contentious following the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at a Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October.

"Whoever has ordered and implemented this violent crime should be found out at once". After offering numerous contradictory explanations, Riyadh later said Khashoggi had been killed and his body dismembered when negotiations to persuade him to return to Saudi Arabia failed.

In an interview to CNN, Pompeo was asked if he could confidently tell Khashoggi's four children that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was not involved in his murder, Pompeo said he had "read every piece of intelligence" in possession of the USA authorities and concluded "there's no direct evidence linking him to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi".

On Wednesday, United States Secretary of State Michael R Pompeo said that there was no report on the direct involvement of Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the killing of former Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

"We have never seen this as a political issue", Erdogan said.

"Of course, that might be valid from a legal point of view", Erdogan said.

Communications that the United States intercepted in July show that Mohammed had asked senior Saudi intelligence officials about the status of a plan to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia, according to one intelligence official.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he brought up the Khashoggi issue while at the summit. "It remains an important relationship, and we're aiming to keep that relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia".

"We suggest renaming the street address of the Saudi Embassy into Jamal Khashoggi Way to be a daily reminder to Saudi officials" that such killings are "totally unacceptable and as an expression of Washington's unstinting support for freedom of the press", the petition states.

Citing portions of the CIA's written assessment, the Wall Street Journal first reported on Saturday that Mohammed had sent at least 11 messages to Qahtani before and after the killing.

Putin said he had agreed with Prince Mohammed to renew a pact on cutting oil production by their two nations, the world's leading exporters of crude.
