Earlier on Thursday, Pompeo said he told Trump that the United States should give the Saudis "a few more days" to complete their investigation into Khashoggi's case "so we can get a complete understanding" of the facts.

Mr Trump has previously vowed to inflict "severe punishment" on Saudi Arabia if it was behind Mr Khashoggi's killing - but also said he is against cancelling military contracts with Riyadh.

"I visit the country regularly and see high growth potential - and high actual growth in the private sector", Mucic said in an interview.

"That's the message I transmitted to Saudi Arabia's foreign affairs minister", Freeland said in reference to the Khashoggi case.

The Saudis have strongly denied the allegations but USA media outlets have reported they will acknowledge he was killed in a botched interrogation.

Mr Mnuchin announced he would pull out of the summit, following a discussion with President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Mahoney said Khashoggi's disappearance has generated greater "horror" and more global press coverage than he has seen in many, many years. We will have them very soon, and I think we'll be making a statement, a very strong statement.

However, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also said the kingdom should be given more time to investigate before the USA lays any blame or considers action.

Authorities widened the geographic focus of the search after tracking the routes and stops of cars that left the Saudi consulate and the consul's residence on Oct 2, the day Khashoggi was last seen, the senior officials said.

"Here we go again with, you know, you're guilty until proven innocent", he said yesterday.

Turkish reports have claimed that Mr Khashoggi, who was last seen entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2, was killed and dismembered inside by members of an assassination squad with ties to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Forensics teams studied in the van for three hours by using special chemicals, including Luminol, to find an evidence on the suspected murder, the report said.

During his meeting with Trump, Pompeo advised that Saudi Arabia be given some more time to complete investigation. "They continue to be an important counterterrorism partner".

Trump has previously said he does not want to halt a proposed $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia - as some in Congress have suggested - because it would harm the USA economically.

The sudden cash windfall raised some eyebrows on Wednesday, given the ongoing investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance, but U.S. officials denied that the swift transfer of cash between Saudi Arabia and the United States had anything to do with Pompeo's visit to Riyadh.
