Turkey will not extradite suspects wanted by the West unless they extradite Gülenists: Erdoğan
ANKARAPresident Recep Tayyip Erdoğan called on Western countries to extradite members of the Fethullahist Terror Organization (FETÖ) who have sought asylum but has avoided naming these countries, while noting that trials into the July 2016 coup plotters had begun in Ankara and Istanbul.
“I am calling out to the world: If you do not help us in extraditing [these people], you should know that you won’t be able to get those people you request from us in the future,” he told party deputies in parliament.
“That’s because the fight against terror is not local, it’s rather international. If we are struggling against terror all together, then you should extradite these people to us,” he said.
Hundreds of FETÖ members have applied for asylum in European countries in the aftermath of the failed coup attempt.
