ANKARA - Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Monday he believes that US President-elect Donald Trump will not make the same mistakes as the outgoing administration in relations with Turkey.

Addressing Turkish diplomats gathered in Ankara for an annual ambassadors' conference, Cavusoglu said Turkey expects Washington to extradite US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen and to end its cooperation with the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia.

Turkey blames the followers of Gulen, who has lived in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania since 1999, for orchestrating a failed coup attempt last July. It views the YPG, which has enjoyed US support in the fight against Islamic State, as an extension of Kurdish militants fighting inside Turkey.
