The Crown Prince also told associates in August previous year that if he failed to persuade Khashoggi to return to Saudi Arabia, "we could possibly lure him outside Saudi Arabia and make arrangements" - a communication the Central Intelligence Agency said "seems to foreshadow the Saudi operation launched against Khashoggi".

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday at the G20 summit of industrialized nations that while Turkey did not want to damage the Saudi royal family, the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi has been a test for the whole world.

But, while leaders appeared to ignore Prince Mohammed on stage during the "family photo", many went on to have closed-door bilateral meetings with him during the two-day summit.

"There's no direct evidence linking him to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi", Pompeo told CNN.

What else did Erdogan say?

Saudi Arabia has said that 21 people are in custody and vowed to keep probing the killing of Khashoggi, who was killed and dismembered after visiting the kingdom's Istanbul consulate to handle paperwork for his planned wedding.

"To me, we've got a relationship with a country that's a semi-important country and a semi-important ally".

British officials said trade was not on the agenda for the talks with the Saudi heir apparent, known as MBS.

Saudi Arabia's crown prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud sent at least 11 messages to his closest advisor who was charged with overseeing journalist Jamal Khashoggi's murder, in the hours leading up to the killing, the Wall Street Journal said on Saturday quoting a Central Intelligence Agency assessment.

Pompeo, who met in Buenos Aires with his Saudi counterpart, has backed the war as a way to counter Iran, which reportedly has ties to Yemen's Houthi rebels.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and a vocal critic of Saudi leadership, was killed on October 2 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to obtain marriage documents for his upcoming wedding.

The Turkish president said Turkey had evidence that Khashoggi had been killed over the course of seven and a half minutes and had shared the evidence with those countries who had asked for it.

Trudeau said he also brought up the need for better answers on the killing of journalist Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the ongoing imprisonment of Raif Badawi, as well as the need for an immediate ceasefire and humanitarian aid in Yemen. Al-Qahtani was sanctioned by the White House last month for his involvement.

President Donald Trump, who also has been briefed on the CIA's findings, has been equivocal in assigning blame to the crown prince, who works closely with the president's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner on Middle East issues. Russian Federation and Iran back President Bashar al-Assad in Syria's civil war, while Saudi Arabia along with Western countries have backed some rebel groups.
