"We now see that it wasn't just cut up; (the Saudi suspects) got rid of the body by dissolving it", Yasin Aktay, an adviser to Recep Tayyip Erdogan and an official in Turkey's ruling party, told the newspaper Hurriyet on Friday.

Meanwhile, reports quote Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman as telling the U.S. he considered Khashoggi to be a unsafe Islamist.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called the slaying of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi a horrendous act that "should be duly dealt with" in a way that doesn't undermine Saudi Arabia's stability.

Ankara has repeatedly called for the suspects - who have been arrested in Saudi Arabia - to be extradited for trial in Turkey, something that Riyadh has rejected.

Netanyahu said Israel was involved in French and Danish investigations this year of alleged plots by Iranian intelligence agencies to attack Iranian opposition figures in Europe.

The memorial is taking place one month after Khashoggi was killed in Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul. Earlier Turkish media reports said audio recordings captured Khashoggi being tortured before his death.

Aktay's statement comes after the first official acknowledgement from the Istanbul chief prosecutor, Irfan Fidan, on Wednesday that Khashoggi's body was "dismembered and destroyed" after his death at the hands of a team of Saudi officials who flew in from Riyadh to kill him.

In this image from TV, Hatice Cengiz, who is Turkish, reacts during an interview on Turkish television channel HaberTurk, Oct. 26, 2018, about the day her fiance, Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi Arabia Consulate on Oct. 2, and was killed inside.

The murder of the royal insider-turned-dissident has provoked widespread outrage against Riyadh and fuelled an worldwide debate about arms deliveries to Saudi Arabia, a key Washington ally against Iran.

But, the statement said, the Saudis had not answered three questions the Turkish side posed - namely, where Khashoggi's body is; whether Saudi investigators had uncovered evidence about the planning of his killing; and the identity of the reported "local collaborator".

Saudi Arabia's consulate is pictured from a skyscraper in Istanbul's Levent district, Turkey.

Later, the kingdom admitted that the critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman was murdered in the consulate, blaming a "rogue operation".

"Of all nations, the United States should be leading the way in bringing the perpetrators to justice", Hatice Cengiz wrote. But we will continue to push the Trump administration to help find justice for Jamal.

"At the consulate, I was left at the door alone".
