Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald Trumpsaid he had seen a media report that Saudi officials might say missing prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed during unauthorized interrogation, but "nobody knows" if this was an official report. "The denial was very, very strong", Trump told reporters.
Khashoggi, 59, who writes for the Washington Post, has said he feared being arrested as part of a crackdown on dissident voices by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Saudi officials have strongly denied any involvement in his disappearance and say that he left the consulate soon after arriving. Turkey had publicly scolded the Saudi government for refusing repeated requests to search the consulate, where Turkish investigators believe Khashoggi was killed and dismembered by Saudi agents. It remained unclear what evidence they might be able to uncover. As if to drive the point home, a cleaning crew with mops, trash bags and cartons of milk walked in past journalists waiting outside the consulate on Monday.
However, given the close political and economic links between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia it remains unclear what action he could take. However, the Turkish leadership has so far refrained from pointing the finger directly at Riyadh in public comments.
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Trump called Pompeo Sunday evening and asked him to meet face-to-face with Saudi leaders. He said in Georgia that Pompeo may add a stop in Turkey.

Two leading Republican senators said Congress stands ready to act, including a possible halt of military sales, if President Donald Trump doesn't.
Saudi Arabia rejected threats to punish it over the disappearance, saying the kingdom would retaliate against any sanctions with tougher measures. That's triggered speculation that the world's biggest exporter of oil could break with decades-old policy by using its crude as a political weapon. At this moment there are no plans to change the Formula E calendar this season. The official said one of the men had brought along a bone saw for dismembering the body.
