United States treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin on Sunday was second-guessing his stated intention to attend an economic conference in Saudi Arabia, following the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

News reports about orders to kill Khashoggi "are lies and baseless allegations", the minister said in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

The Jordanian government also affirmed the Kingdom's central role in consolidating security, stability and peace and enhancing economic cooperation both regionally and globally.

Khashoggi, who moved to the USA in 2017 and worked as a columnist for The Washington Post, disappeared in Turkey on October 2 when he reportedly entered the building of Saudi Arabia's Consulate in the city of Istanbul.

Turkish officials say that they fear Saudi agents killed and dismembered Khashoggi after he entered the consulate and that they have audio and video recordings of it.

The Saudi stock market lost $US33 billion of its value on Sunday amid investor worries about deteriorating global relations, one of the first signs of the economic pain that Riyadh could suffer over the affair.

"I will be also calling King Salman of Saudi Arabia, because I think it's appropriate for me to ask him what is going on", he said.

The event is being hosted by the kingdom's Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman to promote his reform agenda.

It's unclear, however, whether Saudi Arabia would be willing to unilaterally cut production.

In written responses to questions by the AP, Cengiz said Turkish authorities had not told her about any recordings and Khashoggi was officially "still missing".

Turkish government sources say police believe he was killed but Riyadh denies that.

Almost two weeks since Jamal Khashoggi vanished in Istanbul, the shadow of the Saudi journalist's disappearance continues to loom ever larger.

On Sunday, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Saudi Arabia should take Trump's warning over the journalist's fate seriously.

But the President all but ruled out cancelling US$110 billion in U.S. arms sales to Saudi Arabia, arguing that doing so would be "very foolish for our country" and only end up harming United States defence industries and others.

"What has been circulating about orders to kill (Khashoggi) are lies and baseless allegations against the government of the kingdom, which is committed to its principles, rules and traditions and is in compliance with worldwide laws and conventions", Prince Abdulaziz said. "He knew the time is getting very close for him to be arrested, and he chose to leave Saudi Arabia and go to Washington to be able to speak his mind and not be arrested", Okda said.

US-Saudi relations have grown even stronger since Trump took office.
