US invites Turkey to present any Gulen coup evidence

Secretory of state John Kerry said today that United States of America will help Turkey in the investigation of the failed coup and invited Ankara to share any evidence it has against a US-based opposition cleric Fethullah Gulen.
Speaking in Luxembourg, Kerry said Washington had not yet received a formal deportation bid for the expatriate cleric, but added: “We fully anticipate that there will be questions raised about Mr Gulen.”
Gulen, a reclusive Islamic preacher with a worldwide following who is regularly accused of a behind the scenes role in Turkish politics, lives in a tiny town in the Pocono Mountains of the US state of Pennsylvania.He has been accused by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of being behind the Thursday’s boody coup attempt, although he has denied any role and condemned the military uprising “in the strongest terms.”
