Turkey’s foreign minister says U.S. is ‘Working On’ Extraditing Gulen’

Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said the United States was “working on” extraditing Fethullah Gulen, the Muslim religious leader who is wanted in Turkey on charges that he instigated a failed coup that occurred in 2016.

Mr. Gulen has lived in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania since the 1990s. Mr. Cavusoglu said that, during a meeting on the occasion of the recent Group of 20 summit meeting in Buenos Aires, President Trump had told President Erdogan that the US was “working on” the extradition request.
