"We will prove to the world that the two governments (Saudi and Turkish) are cooperating to punish any criminal, any culprit, and at the end justice will prevail", he said to applause.

Turkey has other "information and evidence" about the killing by Saudi officials after Khashoggi entered the consulate on October 2, and it will eventually reveal that information, Erdogan said without elaborating.

His comments come a day after Turkey said it wished to extradite 18 Saudi nationals authorities say were involved in the murder.

"What is the link between arms sales and Khashoggi?" he said, calling it "pure demagoguery to call for a halt" to exports over the killing.

Still, Mattis' speech also reflected the hard dilemma this has caused.

He also said Turkey has other "information and evidence" about the killing, which it will release "when the time is right".

Riyadh says 18 people have been arrested and five senior government officials have been sacked as part of the investigation.
