Arrest warrants were issued in Turkey for former Saudi intelligence chief Ahmad al-Assiri and former royal adviser Saud al-Qahtani. A Saudi delegation close to the prince visited the U.S. in November 2016 on a fact-finding mission of sorts and later put together a slide presentation.

Erdogan insisted last weekend during a trip to South America that Riyadh hand over the suspects, but said the kingdom was not cooperating.

"The inner circle is predominantly deal makers who lack familiarity with political customs and deep institutions, and they support Jared Kushner", the Saudi delegation said, describing the incoming Trump administration in a slide presentation obtained by the newspaper Al Akhbar in Lebanon.
