The call from Mohammed bin Salman took place before Saudi Arabia acknowledged that the writer was murdered and urged Kushner, President's Trump's son-in-law and a White House adviser, and Bolton to maintain the alliance between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, the Washington Post reported.

Saudi Arabia has changed its account of what happened to Khashoggi.

Israel and Saudi Arabia do not have diplomatic relations but share intelligence about their mutual enemies, especially Iran.

"Jamal Khashoggi was not a member of the Muslim Brotherhood". Writing for The Washington Post, he became a prominent critic of the family, particularly bin Salman. The president, however, "will demand accountability for those who were involved in the commission of this heinous crime", Pompeo stressed Thursday.

The body of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi was "dissolved" after his murder and dismemberment at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, an adviser to the Turkish president has said.

US State Department spokesman Robert Palladino on Thursday called for Khashoggi's remains to be located and returned to his family for burial as soon as possible. After initially denying Khashoggi had been killed, the Saudi government claimed he died in an unplanned "rogue operation".

On Wednesday, the Istanbul prosecutor's office said in a statement that Khashoggi's body was dismembered and destroyed after he was strangled in the Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul.

Saudi Arabia has faced a torrent of worldwide condemnation over the killing of the royal insider-turned-critic.

It is also pressing Saudi Arabia for information concerning Khashoggi's remains, which still haven't been found, as well as who ordered the journalist's slaying.

Turkish media had previously quoted sources as saying Turkey had audio recordings proving that Khashoggi had been tortured before being murdered.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al Jubeir said on October 21 that a "tremendous mistake" had been made and those responsible would be punished -- 18 suspects have been arrested in Riyadh.

Recalling that more than 70 years of US-Saudi ties survived previous crises, Prince Turki said: "Nowadays, this relationship is once again threatened".

But analysts say the relationship between Saudi Arabia - which has at times tolerated and abetted the loosely defined political movement - and the group is more nuanced.

One Israeli official said, "Saudi Arabia is a very important state in the region, and Israel and other nations have a major interest in ensuring its continued stability".

Earlier, the U.S. called for a swift cessation of hostilities in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition has been fighting rebels supported by its arch-enemy Iran.

"The Trump administration has taken a position that is devoid of moral foundation", she wrote, adding that "there will be no cover-up".
