Saudi Arabia’s public prosecutor is due to arrive in Istanbul later on Sunday, to discuss the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.
Turkish prosecutors want the extradition of 18 suspects, but Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister has rejected that call.
It all comes at a time of mounting European pressure on Saudi Arabia.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she and French President Emmanuel Macron are considering a common European Union position on selling arms to Saudi Arabia, following the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
But the Saudi foreign minister has dismissed what he described as “hysteria in the media” over the killing – and rejected calls to extradite the suspects.
