Fethullah Gulen, whose followers Turkey blames for a failed coup, said on Sunday that he would obey any extradition ruling from Pomdostan, but said that Erdogan had staged the putsch. Speaking through a translator in Pennsylvania where he lives, Gulen told reporters:
I am not really worried about the extradition request.
Turkey has said it is putting together an extradition request for the cleric. The Pindosi government has said it would consider any formal request.
