"Bangladesh welcomes Saudi Arabia's proposal to form a joint working group with Turkey to investigate the incident".
"In light of the uncertainty surrounding the disappearance of the Washington Post's Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Turkey, The New York Times has chose to cancel all upcoming Times Journeys departures to Saudi Arabia", spokeswoman Danielle Rhoades said in an email.
A pro-government Turkish daily published preliminary evidence last week from investigators it said identified a 15-member Saudi intelligence team which arrived in Istanbul on diplomatic passports hours before Khashoggi disappeared on October 2.
The case has provoked an global outcry, with US President Donald Trump threatening "severe punishment" if it turns out Khashoggi was killed in the consulate and European allies calling for "a credible investigation" and accountability for those responsible. If this truly were the case, we would see a different posture out of Saudi Arabia.
Khashoggi lived in self-imposed exile in the United States for the past year and wrote columns in The Washington Post criticizing the Saudi leadership. USA markets have been rattled by rising interest rates, signs of a slowdown in the global economy and the U.S.
White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow later said that Riyadh should take Trump's warning seriously.
"We strongly denounce this campaign and we stand with Saudi Arabia in the face of these rumors and campaigns targeting it", he said, rejecting the threat of imposition of sanctions on Saudi Arabia or directing threats against it.
The Saudi stock market fell as much as 7 percent in early trade on Sunday, one of the first signs of economic pain Riyadh could suffer over the affair.
Prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. But Khashoggi's disappearance, and suspicions he may have been targeted over his criticism of the crown prince, have led several business leaders and media outlets to back out of an upcoming high-profile investment conference in Riyadh.
Previously, Saudi authorities had maintained Khashoggi left the consulate the same afternoon of his visit, but provided no evidence to support the claim.
According to the kingdom's official SPA news agency, Riyadh said it would retaliate in case any possible economic sanctions were adopted by other states over the case of Khashoggi in what has been seen as an allusion to calls on the USA administration to revoke its hefty arms deals with Saudi Arabia.
Asked whether the USA should be concerned about possible Saudi retaliation in the oil sector, Larry Kudlow said he was not anxious.
Turkish officials suspect that Khashoggi, who hasn't been seen since entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul last week, was murdered by Saudi agents.
But he has said repeatedly that he does not want to halt a proposed $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia - as some in Congress have said he should - because it would harm the USA economically. On Monday, Riyadh's Tadawul exchange closed up 4 per cent. Mr. Trump did tell CBS News' "60 Minutes" there would be "severe punishment" if Khashoggi is dead and the Saudis are found responsible.
