Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlut Cavusoglu has recently answered a question related to Donald Trump’s victory in the United States presidential election.
“We wish for this election to be beneficial for USA and for the entire world. Everyone needs to be respectful to the people’s decisions in democratic elections. We always place importance on our relations with USA. We believe that we can develop relationships with Trump based on mutual trust, and that our relations with USA will be stronger in days to come.” said Cavusoglu.
When asked about the matter of Gulen(leader of the Gulenist movement, who currently resides in Pennsylvania), Cavusoglu added:
“It is clear how Trump and my administration see FETO. Essentially, we want the current administration to hand FETO over to us, and not to neglect this matter any further”
Meanwhile, President-elect Trump’s stance on handing Gulen over to Turkey (to face charges related to the failed coup attempt back in July) is unknown as of yet.
