The White House says the United States is not sheltering Fethullah Gulen, the Turkish preacher whom Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blames for a coup attempt, and would consider an potential extradition request.
"So the suggestion that somehow the United States is harbouring Mr Gulen is factually incorrect," White House spokesman Josh Ernest says.
"The truth is, there's been no extradition request put forward. And when it is - it is one that will be carefully considered by the US government consistent with the extradition treaty that's been on the books more than 30 years now."
