Turkey has been working with other countries toward a possible UN investigation into the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a Turkish minister said on Monday.

Turkey is "actively" continuing its investigation and "collaborating" with other UN members, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said without elaboration at a press conference during a visit to Tunisia.

Cavusoglu urged Saudi authorities to share information about their investigation "with us and the whole world".

He said Turkish authorities notably want the Saudis to explain what happened to Khashoggi's remains and who was in charge of handling them.

Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post, wrote critically about Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. A team of Saudi agents killed him at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.
