The move comes in response to the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, a dissident columnist who was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago.

Turkish authorities say a team of Saudis killed Khashoggi, and USA intelligence intercepts show Saudi officials discussing an operation to lure Khashoggi - a Saudi citizen who had been living in the United States - back to Saudi Arabia from his home in Virginia and detain him.

The Saudi government could not immediately be reached for comment on the CNN report.

Speaking to reporters after a phone call with King Salman, Mr Trump said the Saudi leader had firmly denied knowing what had happened to Mr Khashoggi.

The king thanked Erdogan for welcoming the Saudi proposal for the joint group and said no one could undermine their relationship.

As is so often the case, when human rights conflict with war and money, war and money win - and not just under Trump, as some journalists have been quick to suggest.

Speaking with reporters at the White House later, Trump reiterated that there would be "very powerful" repercussions for Saudi Arabia should the United States determine that the kingdom is responsible for the death of Khashoggi, who wrote for the Post's Global Opinions section.

Claims that missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi recorded audio of his own torture and murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on his Apple Watch are being questioned by cyber security experts.

"Trump accepting Saudi Arabia's Khashoggi story without a thorough, independent investigation only enables authoritarian behaviour", said Senator Ed Markey. Trump's argument that any such curtailment would entail a USA economic sacrifice and would only open a market for Russian Federation and China to exploit is phony because his claim of securing $110 billion in military sales to Saudi Arabia is also phony.

The official said the prosecutor had been instructed to work quickly.

Turkish officials have said they fear a Saudi hit team killed and dismembered Khashoggi, who wrote critically of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Saudi Arabia unapologetically flogs, imprisons - and occasionally, crucifies - people for committing the crime of "homosexual intercourse".

On Monday, King Salman ordered an investigation into the case.
