ANKARA, Oct. 10, 2017 - Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim (C) addresses the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP)'s weekly parliamentary group meeting in Ankara, Turkey, on Oct. 10, 2017. Yildirim said on Tuesday that Turkey will not ask the United States for permission to detain or prosecute suspects. The spat between the two countries was ignited by the recent arrest of Metin Topuz, a U.S. consulate employee in Istanbul, over suspected links to U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, who is accused by Ankara of being behind a failed coup attempt in July 2016.
