"It would be a lie to say this has not created a malaise", she said. "We are waiting patiently". After denying responsibility, the Saudis admitted Khashoggi was slain in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul at the hands of Saudi personnel.
The United States has not had an ambassador to Saudi Arabia since Trump took office in January 2017. "We want the person who gave the order to be revealed". A key question is whether Saudi Arabia's leadership ordered the killing of Khashoggi, a critic of the government.
Turkish officials say a 15-man Saudi hit squad - including at least one member of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's entourage - tortured, murdered and dismembered Khashoggi.
Erdogan did not elaborate on how and when the Saudi official heard the recording of the killing of the Saudi citizen. Erdogan has taken that comment and Saudi support for Kurdish rebels fighting the Islamic State group in Syria as a direct challenge to his power.
The post of US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, a key ally in the region, has been vacant even the bilateral ties have been tested recently due to the high casualties in Yemen caused by the Saudi-led airstrikes and the killing of a Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey.
"The tape is really bad", Erdogan said, according to Posta.

Trump says North Korea missile work 'normal'
The New York Times called evidence of 13 undeclared missile sites evidence of a " great deception " by North Korea . Trump has bragged that the sanctions remain in place as negotiations continue for a nuclear deal.
"I'm suffocating ... Take this bag off my head, I'm claustrophobic", the murdered columnist reportedly said. "Despite that, there are those who are seeking to manipulate the incident". Prince Mohammed has defended the Yemen campaign.
Meanwhile, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan described the recording as "appalling", Turkish media reported Tuesday. Upon entering the consulate, according to the chief prosecutor's office in Istanbul, he was strangled and his body dismembered.
Without specifically accusing the crown prince of orchestrating the killing and the cover-up efforts, Erdogan frequently invoked his name in expressing his frustration.
He told reporters on his plane returning from a weekend visit to France that he discussed Khashoggi's killing with the US, French and German leaders at a dinner in Paris. "Our intelligence organization did not hide anything", he said, according to Reuters.
In the wake of the killing, initially brushed off as a disappearance by the Saudis, Turkey leaked a string of gruesome pieces of evidence suggesting otherwise and played an audio recording of the murder to the head of the Central Intelligence Agency. "I think the perspectives will change after this briefing".
Khashoggi's murder has provoked global outrage but little concrete action by major powers against Saudi Arabia, the world's largest oil exporter and a strong proponent of USA policy to contain Iranian influence across the Middle East.
