Both leaders, according to a Kremlin aide, Yuri Ushakov, will also discuss oil markets and the crisis in Syria.

In an earlier report, Legit.ng gathered that death penalty had been sought by Saudi against five suspects that were accused of murdering the journalist in the country's consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on Tuesday, October 2.

Saudi's public prosecutor, Saud Al-Mojeb, announced charges against six other people allegedly involved in the killing. Legit.ng noted that the prosecutor said Saudi believes that Khashoggi was given a lethal injection inside the country's consulate on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the CIA had said that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of Khashoggi in Istanbul.

The revelation contradicted the Saudi government’s claims that the Prince was not involved in the killing, according to people familiar with the matter.

Legit.ng gathered that the CIA’s assessment, in which officials have said they have high confidence, is the most definitive to date linking Mohammed to the operation and complicates the Trump administration’s efforts to preserve its relationship with a close ally.
