Saudi Arabia has agreed to let Turkish authorities search the kingdom's Istanbul consulate after prominent journalist and Riyadh critic Jamal Khashoggi went missing last week, the Turkish foreign ministry said Tuesday.
Relations between Ankara and Riyadh have been strained over Turkey's support for Qatar in its yearlong dispute with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf nations and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's sympathetic attitude toward the Muslim Brotherhood, which Riyadh considers to be a terrorist organization.
The president said Wednesday he has been in contact with Saudi officials at the highest levels shortly before the Washington Post reported Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman sought to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia and detain him.
The Washington Post, citing USA intelligence intercepts, reported that Saudi Arabia's crown prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered an operation to trap Khashoggi.

The Washington Post reports that USA intelligence intercepts outlined a Saudi plan to detain a prominent journalist and critic who disappeared a week ago.
Mahoney said Khashoggi's disappearance is "designed, in a very brutal way, to send a message 'if you speak out against the Saudi government, if it could happen to him, it could happen to you"'.
"We demand from the worldwide community to pressure Saudi Arabia and Mohammed bin Salman to tell us exactly what happened".
The Turkish government is looking into Khashoggi's disappearance.
The interview was conducted three days before Khashoggi's disappearance, when he was in London for a conference, the BBC said. They said their investigators had "concrete proof" of the killing, which, they said, was carried out by a 15-person Saudi team who arrived in the country last week.

Mr Erdogan, who said he was personally following the case, added that Turkey had no documents or evidence at hand regarding the case. It plans to move forward with its search of the Saudi consulate soon.
Khashoggi has been an outspoken critic of the Saudi government, causing him to leave his home country past year to live in exile in the United States.
Saudi Arabia's ambassador was summoned to the Turkish embassy twice in the last week over the issue.
On Saturday, Turkish officials told the Post that Khashoggi had been killed at the Saudi consulate.
