US delegation heads to Turkey for Gülen extradition talks


A delegation of four officials from the U.S. will travel to Turkey on Aug. 22 to discuss Ankara’s demand for the extradition of Fethullah Gülen, who Ankara accuses of orchestrating the July 15 coup attempt in Turkey, amid stringed ties between the two NATO allies concerning the issue.

The delegation of three U.S. Justice Ministry officials and one U.S. Department of State official will hold meetings with Turkish officials on Aug. 23 and 24 over the failed coup attempt and the issue of Gülen’s extradition.

Turkish Justice Ministry officials have concluded their preparations for the delegation’s visit, in which they say they will share with their U.S. counterparts the extradition demand documents and evidence showing Gülen’s direct involvement in the coup attempt.
