REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, ANKARA -- Turkey's Prime Minister Binali Yildirim will visit the United States on Nov. 7-11 to discuss the extradition of Fetullah Gulen and other issues amid visa row between the two countries, local media reported.

Yildirim is expected to meet U.S. Vice President Mike Pence in Washington, and will attend a meeting on economic issue in New York.

His visit will focus on talks regarding the extradition of U.S.-based Turkish cleric Gulen, who is wanted by Ankara for masterminding a coup bid last year, Daily Sabah said.

Turkish Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gul said last week the government had submitted all the documents to the United States for the extradition of Gulen, adding the prime minister could visit the United States in the upcoming days for this and other issues.

The U.S. administration is reluctant to extradite the self-exiled cleric despite repeated calls by the Turkish government.

The two NATO allies are also at odds after the arrest of U.S. Consulate staff member led to a mutual suspension of visa services.
