    Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has said that the ties with the US could turn sour unless Washington extradites cleric Gulen, who, according to Ankara, is behind the failed coup.

    His statement comes ahead of his trip to the US, and he said he would discuss the relations with US officials during the visit.

    Washington has repeatedly said that Turkey must give clear evidence of Gulen’s link with the attempted coup before discussing any possible extradition. Lawyers have said the process, if launched, may take years.

    Cavusoglu also said Turkey may remove some ambassadors linked to the coup attempt.

    Cavusoglu warned the EU that it “can’t threaten Turkey.”

    “Were protecting European values. EU officials often say what they think, but when it turns into a threat, it becomes counter-productive.”

    Tell them to **** off. It's a true shame that coup failed their current Fuhrer, ahem i mean 'President' is a raving lunatic. I imagine the yanks will relent fairly quickly though as they dont want to loose that air base and theyre loosing Turkey to Russia.
