Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay said his country "gave a clear message that whoever committed a crime on its territory will not escape, whatever his identity".

The senior Turkish official was commenting on the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

In an interview with the Anadolu Agency, Oktay said: "We should consider reports that Khashoggi's body may have been dissolved in acid," adding that his country deals with the case with all transparency.

"Who gave the order to commit this crime on our land? We are looking for the answer," he said.

He added that Turkey "does not conceal any information or evidence from any party. We share it as we see fit, with the parties concerned."
