Speaking to Reuters news agency, Turkish Foreign Minister Melvut Cavusoglu repeated the request of his government for the speedy extradition by Greece of the eight rebel Turkish servicemen that landed in the northern city of Alexandroupolis, in Greece, last Saturday asking for political asylum.

In another interview on Turkish state media, Cavucoglu claimed the US did not need a long period of time to extradite US-based islamic cleric Fethullah Gulen, who has been dubbed a traitor and the mastermind behind the July 15 failed coup attempt by Turkish President Erdiogan.

Cavucohlu said the US had proposed the setting up of a committee that would examine the Gulen matter, adding that Turkey was willing to take part in the process. He continued by noting that the US should not allow Gulen to escape to another country while waiting to be extradited.
