Turkish PM says US should 'speed up' cleric's extradition


ISTANBUL - Turkey's prime minister says his government wants the United States to speed up procedures for the extradition of US-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom Turkey accuses of orchestrating last month's violent coup attempt.


Prime Minister Binali Yildirim told foreign media representatives Saturday that Turkey and the United States have an extradition agreement and the process should not be delayed.


He says "we want the process to be accelerated ... this man was the leader of the coup. What are we waiting for? The agreement between the two countries is clear."
