"We have never seen Khashoggi's murder as a political issue", Erdogan told a news conference in Buenos Aires.
Algiers also has strong ties with Qatar, with which Saudi Arabia and three other Arab states severed trade and transport ties in June 2017. Khashoggi, who relocated to the USA from Saudi Arabia a year ago, used to write articles for The Washington Post, criticising the Saudi government.
