The arrest warrant said these two senior officials were among those responsible for planning the murder, according to TRT.
Amid criticism from Ankara over Saudi Arabia's lack of cooperation with the Turkish investigation, the official said Riyadh could "address those concerns" over its commitment to probing the murder by extraditing all the suspects to Turkey.
The handful of prominent Republicans who openly broke with the administration over Khashoggi's killing on Tuesday after receiving a briefing by Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel, included South Carolina Sen.
Corker said he has suggested some changes to the legislation to Menendez, who is the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations panel.
Despite President Donald Trump's desire to maintain close ties to Saudi Arabia, several of his fellow Republicans have joined Democrats in blaming the crown prince for Khashoggi's death and backing legislation to respond by ending USA support for the Saudi-led war effort in Yemen, imposing new sanctions and stopping weapons sales. Graham said Tuesday the difference between the Haspel briefing and the one last week was "like darkness and sunshine" in terms of shedding light on MBS's involvement in Khashoggi's killing.
The prosecutor's office has concluded that there is "strong suspicion" that Saud al-Qahtani and General Ahmed al-Asiri, both removed from their positions in October, were among the planners of Khashoggi's Oct. 2 killing at the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul, the officials said.

That measure is meant to hold the Saudi crown prince "accountable" for contributing to the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, a blockade of Qatar, the jailing of dissidents and Khashoggi's death but it imposes no penalties on Riyadh. "I think we have the votes to proceed (on his resolution) and I hope we can proceed in an orderly way". "I'm not going to blow past this", he said.
Two weeks ago Trump said, "I don't know". "Now, the question is how do you separate the Saudi crown prince and his group from the nation itself?"
Durbin joined Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer in calling for a full-Senate briefing from Haspel. "Guilty. A guilty verdict", the senator said.
Corker has said he expects votes on amendments to the Yemen war powers resolution on Monday.
