Jamal Khashoggi, a USA resident, was murdered in Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul on October 2 and the crown prince has been accused of orchestrating the killing, which has strained the decades-old alliance between Washington and Riyadh.
The kingdom, meantime, has shifted its story multiple times since the initial denials from Otaibi and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who told Bloomberg News just a day after the killing that Khashoggi had left the consulate soon after he entered it.
He added, "I had a conversation with Erdoğan a couple of weeks ago, and here in Paris we had brief exchanges and I thanked him for his strength in responding to the Khashoggi situation".
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Monday Canadian intelligence officers have also listened to recordings of what happened to Khashoggi. In 2016, he became the public face of Saudi Arabia's campaign in Yemen, giving briefings about the state of the war.
The call occurred shortly after Khashoggi was killed last month at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.
In an interview with France 2 television on Monday, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said he "for the moment was not aware" of any information transmitted by Ankara.
Trudeau said that he himself had not heard the shared audio, which is the latest move by Turkey to maintain worldwide pressure on Saudi Arabia to stop a cover up of the October 2 killing.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Turkey has shared recordings of Jamal Khashoggi's murder with other countries.
Meg Ryan & John Mellencamp Are Engaged
There was a rumor earlier this year that Meg and John had tied the knot, but Ryan's rep told EOnline.com it wasn't true. The happy news comes after years of an on-again, off-again romance with the pair.
According to comments published in Hurriyet newspaper, Erdogan said a Saudi intelligence office who listened to the audio was "shocked" and commented that those involved must have been on drugs. We want to know the truth, the circumstances of his death and the identity of the culprits.
Erdogan told reporters on his plane returning from a weekend visit to France that he discussed the Saudi journalist's killing with the U.S., French and German leaders there, adding that Turkey had played the recording to at least six countries.
The high profile of Khashoggi, a USA -based Washington Post columnist, and the drip-drip of sensational leaks about his demise have provoked a global outcry and tarnished the reputation of the brash young prince, whose efforts to cast himself as a bolder reformer and trusted US ally have often chafed against his policies overseas.
Turkish investigators reportedly believe that Khashoggi's remains may have been dissolved in acid.
Khashoggi's murder and the war in Yemen are two of the main sources of strain in the decades-old alliance between Washington and Riyadh.
Saudi officials have portrayed Khashoggi's death as a rogue killing ordered by an official who has since been fired.
