Trump administration may extradite or detain Gulen, Turkey deputy PM says

28 Nov

Turkey is “very optimistic” that the forthcoming US administration will either detain or extradite Fetullah Gulen, the reclusive cleric Ankara accuses of masterminding the July coup attempt, a senior member of the Turkish government told the Middle East Eye.Dr Numan Kurtulmus, deputy prime minister, said he expects “positive steps” from the incoming administration of US President-elect Donald Trump, including from national security adviser appointee Michael Flynn – who has already embraced Turkey’s position – that may lead to the extradition of the cleric and to the US abandoning its support of the PYD Kurdish fighters in Northern Syria.
