U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has defended his decision to attend an anti-terror summit in Saudi Arabia, despite worldwide uproar over the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
"We seek justice and this will be revealed in all its naked truth, not through some ordinary steps but in all its naked truth", Erdogan said on Sunday, according to the semiofficial Anadolu news agency.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke to President Donald Trump and both agreed that the Khashoggi case needs to be clarified "in all its aspects".
Turkish police believe The Washington Post columnist was murdered and dismembered shortly after he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2; Turkish media have reported that a 15-man hit team was sent from Riyadh specifically for the assignment.
The kingdom acknowledged early Saturday that Khashoggi died in a brawl in its consulate, but did not give any explanation on the cause of his death.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters in Berlin on Sunday that she supports a freeze on arms exports to Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir told Fox News' Bret Baier on Sunday that Khashoggi's death was part of a "rogue operation" and that 18 people implicated in his slaying would be punished.
"Nothing can justify this killing and we condemn it in the strongest possible terms", Germany, Britain and France said in their joint statement.
On the day of Khashoggi's disappearance, 15 other Saudis, including several officials, arrived in Istanbul on two planes and visited the consulate while he was still inside, according to Turkish police sources.

In a tweet, President Kovind said, Indian Railways and local authorities are taking steps to help the affected people. "Some are saying 50, some are saying 60", Chief Minister of Punjab Amarinder Singh said of the number killed.
Salah expressed his honest thanks to King Salman and Crown Prince for their condolences, according to SPA.
The King of Saudi Arabia and the Crown Prince sent their condolences to Khashoggi's son.
Barring an unlikely "confession" from Prince Mohammed, Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff said Sunday, "the president is going to accept the crown prince's denials like he's accepted Mr Putin's denials and Kim Jong Un's denials". "There obviously was a tremendous mistake made, and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up".
Indeed, reports say the Saudis will claim Asiri was instructed to detain Khashoggi but either misunderstood or got carried away.
After Saudi Arabia confirmed his death, she wrote on Twitter in Arabic: "They have taken your body from this world, but your attractive smile will stay in my world forever".
"Do I think he did it?"
She said: "I agree with all those who say when it comes to our already limited arms exports to Saudi Arabia, that they can not take place in the current situation".
The official said Saudi statements had changed because of "false information reported internally at the time". We are determined to find out all the facts.
