    "We congratulate Trump on his victory in the elections. The new president is facing a possibility to open a new page in the relations between our countries, should the United States extradite the terrorist leader [Islamic cleric Fethullah Gulen, suspected by Ankara of masterminding the July coup attempt]," Yıldırım told the NTV channel.
