ISTANBUL - President Tayyip Erdogan said recordings related to the killing of Jamal Khashoggi, which Turkey has shared with Western allies, are "appalling" and shocked a Saudi intelligence officer who listened to them, Turkish media reported on Tuesday.

Erdogan has said he does "not believe for a second" that the prince´s father King Salman ordered the crime.

He said he brought up the subject during a recent phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and again when the two met this weekend in Paris.

Saudi officials characterize the killing as a rogue operation carried out by Saudi agents who exceeded their authority. "Saudi Arabia's government can disclose this by making these 15 people talk", Erdogan said.

During a trip to the region that includes a visit to Riyadh's close ally the UAE, Hunt will also seek to build support for United Nations efforts to end the conflict in Yemen, the Foreign Office said.

The Turkish president told reporters on his plane back from France that he discussed the Khashoggi case with French, German and USA leaders over dinner.

Turkish officials say, however, they remain unsure of what role, if any, Otaibi played in the actual killing. Our intelligence organisation did not hide anything.

Turkish officials have given audio recordings that detail Khashoggi's final moments to Canada, the United States, Germany, France, Britain and Saudi Arabia.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Monday that members of his country's intelligence community had listened to Turkish audio recordings of the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Erdogan's communications director then blasted Le Drian for the denial.

A spokeswoman for the UK Foreign Office told Business Insider she would neither confirm nor deny Erdogan's comments because it was an intelligence matter.

The murder of Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor and critic of Prince Mohammed, has provoked little concrete action by world powers against Saudi Arabia, the world's largest oil exporter and a supporter of Washington's plans to contain Iranian influence across the Middle East.

Turkish intelligence officers have told U.S. officials they believe Mutreb was speaking to one of the prince's aides, it reported.

The visit comes amid global outrage over the murder of Saudi insider-turned-critic Khashoggi in his country's consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

The crown prince has come under scrutiny for having knowledge of the killing, which involved some members of his security entourage. U.S. President Donald Trump and Erdogan have discussed how to respond to the killing.
