Will Turkey push for UN investigation into Khashoggi murder?

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has demanded more answers into the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

At the G20 Summit in Argentina, Erdogan criticised Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for offering an “unbelievable explanation” on Khashoggi’s killing that denied any Saudi official role.

The CIA reportedly believes Prince Mohammed is responsible, as do many US politicians, but not President Donald Trump.

But will Erdogan win support for an international investigation and can involvement from the United Nations make any difference?
