Khashoggi, a prominent critic of Riyadh and a U.S. resident, disappeared on October 2 after visiting the Saudi consulate.
The release had further said the "baseless allegations" levelled against Saudi Arabia were "lies" and further mentioned that the state is "committed to its principles, rules and traditions and is in compliance with worldwide laws and conventions".
Cengiz also didn't just call for an investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance, she urged for the responsible party, "irrespective of their political positions", to be punished.
Two senior Turkish officials previously told Reuters that Khashoggi had been wearing a black Apple watch when he entered the consulate and that it was connected to a mobile phone he left outside.
A representative from Apple, however, confirmed the watches do not have fingerprint entry features, CNN reported on Saturday. The newspaper did not address that in its report. Most models of the watch require that it be within nine to 15 metres (30 to 50 feet) of the iPhone that it is paired with to upload data to Apple's iCloud, they said. An informal review process lets key lawmakers use a practice known as a "hold" to stall deals if they have concerns such as whether the weapons being supplied would be used to kill civilians.
"The Saudi economy has vital and influential roles for the global economy".

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the de facto ruler of the kingdom, is pushing for Saudi Arabia to become a destination for foreign investment. "I mean, they're going to get back, and they have been getting back", he said.
Asked whether bin Salman gave an order to kill Khashoggi, Trump said: "Well, nobody knows yet, but we'll probably be able to find out".
Trump made the comments in an interview for CBS News on Saturday and said there was much at stake with the case, "maybe especially so" because Khashoggi was a reporter. The State Department released no details of the conversation.
The investment conference lists dozens of expected speakers, including JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, Blackrock Chairman Larry Fink and US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, the latter confirming today that he will go.
