Erdoğan to Hillary Clinton: It is Very Unfortunate…
President Erdoğan: It is very unfortunate to hear from US Presdential Candidate Mrs. Clinton that she’ll continue to support PYD.
Turkey will not hand terrorists to U.S. until Washington extradites the Pennsylvania-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen, instead handing them over to the Turkish judiciary, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has suggested.
“When they ask for terrorists from us we hand them over. But look, they do not hand such terrorists to us. Why not? They talk about the judiciary and say they cannot hand him back without a court decision. OK. Let’s see what happens. The same thing could happen here,” Erdoğan said in a speech to judges and prosecutors in Ankara.
“When the U.S. wants someone from us, we will hand them to Turkish judges. We will not decide until Turkish judges decide. That’s how it will be from now on,” he added.
Gülen and his network of followers are accused of being behind Turkey’s failed coup attempt of July 15.
