"The kingdom confirms that if any action is taken against it, it will respond to it by a greater action", SPA quoted an unnamed official as saying.
Missing Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi may have recorded his own death as he turned on the recording function of his Apple Watch before walking into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October, a Turkish daily reported on Saturday.
Turkish police investigating the case said in a statement Saturday that 15 Saudis, including several officials, arrived in Istanbul on two planes and entered the consulate while Khashoggi was inside.
Mr Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi government, vanished on 2 October after visiting its consulate in Istanbul.
The apparent threat of economic retaliation from the world's top oil exporter came after a turbulent day on the Saudi stock exchange, which plunged as much as 7 per cent at one point. Turkey says it believes he was killed inside, telling USA officials that it has tapes and video from his final moments to prove it. Saudi Arabia has vehemently denied that it has anything to do with the disappearance. Among other things, Kushner is hoping for MBS' support in navigating his peace plan between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
He says "there are other ways of punishing".
Donald Trump has rejected halting arms sales to Saudi Arabia over the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi.
He warned that that if it turns out that Saudi authorities are behind all this, the United States would inflict "severe punishment" on them. American lawmakers have threated sanctions against the Saudis, and Germany, France and Britain jointly called today for a "credible investigation" into Mr Khashoggi's disappearance.
In an interview Friday with The Associated Press, Cengiz said Khashoggi was not nervous when he entered the Saudi consulate to obtain paperwork required for their marriage. He says if the kingdom doesn't buy its weaponry from the United States, they will buy it from Russian Federation.
The newspaper said authorities recovered the audio from Khashoggi's iPhone and his iCloud account. That treaty includes a Saudi intent to purchase $110 billion in arms from the U.S.
However, Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida) says the U.S. must take action against Saudi Arabia - including potentially regarding arms sales - if the allegations are proven true.
Bloomberg, the Financial Times, The Economist and The New York Times have withdrawn as media sponsors from the event amid questions about the missing man's fate.
