US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara on Wednesday following talks with Saudi Arabia’s king and crown prince about the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

President Donald Trump, who dispatched his top diplomat to address the crisis, warned of a rush to judgment in the case and echoing the Saudis’ request for patience on the investigation.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has said Pompeo would bring information about the case to Ankara, two weeks after Khashoggi vanished when he visited the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to collect documents for his planned marriage.

After meeting with King Salman and the Crown Prince on Tuesday, Pompeo told reporters that Saudi Arabia has committed to conducting a complete investigation into Khashoggi’s disappearance.
