Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on the King of Saudi Arabia to allow the killers of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi to be tried in Turkey, as he addressed parliament in Ankara on Tuesday.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on the King of Saudi Arabia to allow the killers of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi to be tried in Turkey, as he addressed parliament in Ankara on Tuesday.

The statements came after Erdogan called Khashoggi's killing a pre-mediated operation.

"It is already clear that the murder [of Jamal Khashoggi] was planned," Erdogan said addressing the MPs and civilians listening in the upper chambers of the parliament. "This is a political murder."

"These eighteen people who were arrested, I suggest that these people should be tried in Istanbul," Erdogan said demanding collaborators to be handed over to the Turkish government by the Saudis.

Khashoggi went to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to prepare documents for his upcoming marriage, but has not been seen since.

His fiancee claims to have waited outside for 11 hours but says he did not return.

Turkish officials claimed he was murdered inside and while Saudi officials previously maintained that Khashoggi had left the consulate.

They later reversed their position after an internal investigation, and now claim Khashoggi died as a result of a fight inside the consulate.
