Khashoggi, who once acted as an adviser to the Saudi royal family, fled Saudi Arabia in September of past year amid a crackdown on the kingdom's intellectuals and journalists.
Prince Mohammed also said he hoped to resume oil production from the Neutral Zone, which Saudi Arabia shares with Kuwait, after resolving pending issues between the two Gulf OPEC allies.
