Turkey shared recordings last week of the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi with Riyadh, Washington and other capitals, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said today.
We gave them the recordings, we gave them to Saudi Arabia, we gave them to Washington, to the Germans, to the French, to the British, "he said in a television speech.
"They listened to the conversations that took place here, they know it," he said, but added that they were not accompanied by written documents.
Erdogan did not give details about the specific content of the tapes on his television address.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan did not reveal any specific details about the sound recordings, but said he had discussed the latest developments in the Khashoggi case with US President Donald Trump.
Khashoggi was last seen when he entered the consulate on October 2 to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage.
After repeated denials, Saudi Arabia finally admitted that the 59-year-old man during a mission in a rogue & # 39; operation was killed.
The Turkish pro-government newspaper Sabah reported earlier on Saturday that the killer of Khashoggi put the remains of the insider-turned-criticaster of Riyadh in the well after he dissolved him in acid.
According to pro-government daily Sabah, Khashoggi killers poured the remains of the Riyadh insider-turned critic into the drain after killing him in acid
Samples taken from the consulate drains showed traces of acid, Sabah said without citing sources for his story.
Erdogan, who was on his way to France to attend commemoration on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, accused the & # 39; highest levels & # 39; from the Saudi government of ordering the hit.
Some officials have pointed their finger at the almighty crown prince Mohammed bin Salman and some analysts say Ankara is keen to take the heir away from the nexus of power in Riyadh.
Erdogan has not accused the prince, but has said that he & # 39; ds no second & # 39; that King Salman ordered the crime.
Some Turkish media and officials had said for weeks that Ankara had a sound recording of the murder and had shared it with CIA head Gina Haspel when she visited Turkey at the end of last month.

But the existence of such a recording was not officially confirmed.
The body of Khashoggi was not found, more than a month after the columnist of the Washington Post was murdered.
Yasin Aktay, an adviser to Erdogan, suggested last week that the body might have been resolved.
The Istanbul officer found on 31 October that Khashoggi had been killed and dismembered.
Erdogan has asked for more cooperation from Riyadh in investigating the affair amid suspicion between the two nations after the initial denial by the Saudi & # 39; s that Khashoggi was dead.
The Turkish leader said on Saturday that the 15-person Saudi delegation who had been sent to the consulate knows the killer or murderers very well & # 39 ;.

& # 39; The Saudi authorities should reveal that by letting them speak, & # 39; Erdogan added.
Ankara has, to date without success, demanded the extradition of those involved in the murder.
Before leaving for France, Erdogan said that prior to his press conference he had spoken to the US President Donald Trump by telephone and met with the US leader in Paris, "if we find the opportunity."
Trump and Erdogan have previously spoken by telephone about the case of Khashoggi, who went into American exile last year after openly criticizing the growing harsh performance of Prince Mohammed against dissenting opinions.
With Riyadh, an important regional ally, Washington has so far given the Saudi heir the benefit of the doubt about the affair while demanding answers.
