Binali Yildirim in CNN interview says Turkey in talks with US government for extradition of coup attempt's mastermind. Prime Minister Binali Yildirim has denied Turkey's involvement in an alleged plan with former U.S security adviser Michael Flynn to kidnap U.S.-based Fetullah Gulen, the leader of Fetullah Terrorist Organization behind last year's coup attempt. In part of an interview with popular television host Fareed Zakaria on CNN International posted on the network's website on Saturday evening, Yildirim said Turkey was expecting the White House to extradite Gulen. However, "we see that there is no any signal [through] which extradition will be in place," said Yildirim, speaking in English.
