State Department spokesman Robert Palladino says Washington welcomes the decision.

Besides, under Washington's strategic planning in the region, Saudi Arabia is instrumental in containing Iran and covering the flank of Israel, not to mention its key role in fighting alongside the U.S. against terrorist groups such as the Islamic State.

But the heir apparent could also need to please Turkey, which has been leaking details about Khashoggi's murder.

Agnes Callamard, the special investigator on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, told reporters at United Nations headquarters in NY on Thursday that the people who committed and orchestrated the killing "are high enough to represent the state". Turkish officials have stated since the beginning that Saudi operatives are at fault, claiming to have an audio recording of Khashoggi's murder and dismemberment. "He's running things and so if anybody were going to be, it would be him", the president responded.

For their part, the Trump administration and the USA defence industry are scrambling to save the few actual deals in a much-touted $110 billion arms package for Saudi Arabia.

Key global figures who have pulled out of the conference include top business executives, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, European cabinet ministers, worldwide Monetary Fund head Christine Lagarde and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim.

Turkish police searched the kingdom's Istanbul consulate, and the consul general's residence as well as hunting for evidence in an Istanbul forest.

"Those responsible will be held accountable.in the end justice will prevail". Yemen has been ravaged by a 3 ½-year war between the Saudi-led alliance and Shite rebels known as Houthis.

Speaking at the investment forum, Prince Mohammed said: "Many are trying to exploit the Khashoggi affair to drive a wedge between Saudi Arabia and Turkey".

"It is tragic that it took his death to get the Saudi authorities to grant them the freedom to travel", Slim told AFP.

But the shifting Saudi narrative on what happened to Khashoggi, including the whereabouts of his remains, have left the rest of the world unconvinced that the kingdom's explanation or its moves to detain or fire people it said were involved in his killing are enough.

Two sources told Reuters on Thursday that Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel has heard the recording during her visit to Turkey this week. He said the slaying of Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi royal family, has drawn widespread condemnation.

Turkey's investigation into the killing of Khashoggi has been at times delayed by Saudi officials, who have appeared reluctant to grant the authorities permission to search places considered Saudi territory.

The non-binding resolution also demands a halt to exports "of surveillance systems and other dual-use items that may be used in Saudi Arabia for the purposes of repression".

Khashoggi's killing was the first issue the crown prince raised after he strode on to the stage at the Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh.

Khashoggi's death has severely dented the worldwide reputation of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Three weeks since Khashoggi, a Saudi citizen living in self-imposed exile, disappeared after walking into the consulate to obtain marriage documents, the crisis shows no sign of abating, with key pieces of evidence including the body still missing.

Now, sources cited by the Washington Post and Reuters news agency have backed up the reports.

Turkish officials have voiced their doubts about his intention to support a full investigation.

It is only recently that the government of Saudi Arabia has confirmed that Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate.
