MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Turkey will again ask the United States to extradite a Muslim cleric it blames for staging the July coup after Donald Trump is sworn in as US president, a senior Turkish lawmaker said Thursday.
"After Trump assumes his duties, this file [on Gulen] should certainly be sent to him," Taha Ozhan, who heads the parliament’s foreign affairs commission, told the Anadolu news agency.
The Republican nominee celebrated an unexpected victory over his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, early on Wednesday. He will succeed incumbent President Barack Obama on January 20. The Turkish lawmaker said Ankara could bring up Gulen’s extradition in February.
