– Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has proposed to Washington to exchange living in the United States the theologian Fethullah Gulen on American pastor Andrew Brunson, who is serving a sentence in a Turkish prison, local media reported.
Turkish authorities detained American pastor Brunson and his wife in October last year on suspicion of “endangering national security” of Turkey. Later the wife of Brunson released, and the pastor was accused of having links with the movement of the Islamic preacher Gulen, who, according to Ankara, was behind an unsuccessful coup attempt in Turkey.
Military coup attempt in Turkey was committed on the night of July 16, 2016, but the plans of the rebels has failed.
