Washington wants Ankara to provide evidence before extraditing Gulen: Turkish Foreign Minister

M. M. ALAM ANKARA: Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has claimed  that Washington was willing to extradite US-based businessman Fethullah Gulen if  Ankara provides evidence that he was the man behind the failed coup.  President Obama has said that the matter of Gulen;’s extradition will be dealt with according to the laws of the country.  Nevertheless, Gulen has rejected the charges and condemned the attempt to topple Recep Tayyip Erdoğan government. Turkey that has abolished death penalty in 2004 (as it has been trying to get into EU)  is contemplating to reinstate the capital punishment. This will make its chances to get EU membership further bleak.  Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu
