Turkey: No compromises over Gulen's extradition
Turkey's prime minister said on Saturday that Ankara could not compromise with the United States over its request for the extradition of Islamic cleric Fethullah Gulen which it blames for orchestrating last month's attempted coup.
Prime Minister Binali Yildirim made his comments to a group of Turkish journalists who quoted him as saying that U.S. Vice President Joe Biden would visit Turkey on August 24.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry would also visit Turkey some time in October, he said.
"The main element improving our relations with the U.S. is the extradition of Gulen, where there is no room for negotiation," Yildirim was quoted as saying by CNN Turk's general manager who was among journalists attending the briefing from Yildirim.
"Whether or not the anti-Americanism in Turkey will continue is also dependant on this," Yildirim said.
