Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says he's still planning to attend a Saudi conference, despite several media and corporate sponsors pulling out. 

Mnuchin told CNBC he might reconsider if more information comes out about the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, but said Saudi Arabia has been a good partner for the U.S. on counter-terrorism.

Turkish officials have accused the Saudi government of killing Khashoggi, a prominent Saudi journalist and dissident. 

The New York Times, CNN and CNBC are among the groups pulling sponsorship of the Future Investment Initiative conference over Khashoggi's disappearance.
