Erdogan also said Riyadh needs to disclose the identity of the “local cooperator” who purportedly took Khashoggi’s body from Saudi agents after the journalist was killed at the consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2.

Speaking to provincial members of his AK Party in parliament, Erdogan said Saudi’s public prosecutor was due to meet the Istanbul prosecutor in Istanbul on Sunday.
