Trump, who has forged closer ties with Saudi Arabia and the 33-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, acknowledged for the first time on Thursday that Khashoggi had been murdered. Foreign Minister of the Netherlands Stef Blok said that the countries demanded clarification from Saudi Arabia regarding Khashoggi's disappearance.
He also said 'there is a serious commitment to determine all the facts and ensure accountability, including accountability for Saudi Arabia's senior leaders or senior officials'.
No details were immediately released about the talks in Ankara, and while the trio posed for photos before their meetings, they said nothing in front of journalists. Saudi Arabia has "a healthy spare capacity to serve as a buffer against any emergency", he added.

A Turkish paper has alleged that an "assassination squad" of 15 Saudi men flew into Istanbul on October 2, hours before Khashoggi was last seen entering the Saudi consulate.
The Trump administration has come under scrutiny for its response to the Khashoggi case.
When asked about Khashoggi's disappearance last Thursday, Trump said that while "we don't like it even a little bit", it wouldn't be "acceptable" to him to stop selling billions of dollars worth of weapons to Riyadh.
