Trump working on Gülen’s extradition, Turkey says


United States President Donald Trump has told Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that his administration is working on the extradition of Fethullah Gülen, the mastermind of July 2016 coup attempt, the Turkish foreign minister said, informing about an ongoing FBI probe on FETÖ’s tax evasion.

“In Argentina, Trump told Erdoğan they were working on extraditing [Fethullah] Gülen and other people,” Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told a forum yesterday in Doha, referring to the G20 summit where the leaders met two weeks ago.

Turkey has long been pressing on its NATO ally for the extradition of Gülen, the leader FETÖ that is widely believed to have led the deadly failed coup attempt on July 15, 2016.
