>> Donald Trump has told his Turkish counterpart that Washington is working on extraditing the US based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gülen, the man Ankara blamed for a failed coup in 2016. That's according to the Turkish Foreign Minister, who said on Sunday the extradition of Gülen and members of his organization was discussed by Trump and Turkey's Tayyip Erdoğan At the G-20 summit in Argentina.
>> This guy and the others belong to this organization, 84 names, that we have requested United States to extradite, they should extradite to Turkey. Well, last time we met in Buenos Aires, President Trump told Erdoğan that they have been working on that.>> Gülen, who denies any involvement in the failed coup, has been in self-imposed exile in the US for the last two decades.
While Turkey has long sought his extradition, Trump said last month he wasn't considering sending the preacher back. That's because the US is trying to get Turkey to ease pressure on Saudi Arabia over the killing of a Saudi journalist in Istanbul. The murder of Jamal Khashoggi was also brought up by Turkey's Çavuşoğlu on Sunday, as he criticized the response from European countries.
>> And many European countries who are promoting the freedom of media through freedom of expression are closing their eyes.>> The US Senate on Thursday delivered a rare rebuke to Trump over his support for Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who it blames for Khashoggi's death.
