ANKARA - Turkey's week-long incursion into northern Syria aims to clear Islamic State fighters from a 90 km (56-mile) stretch of territory along the Turkish border, President Tayyip Erdogan's spokesman said on Wednesday.

Ibrahim Kalin also told a news conference that Erdogan was expected to hold talks with US President Barack Obama at a G20 meeting in September about a Turkish request to extradite US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, who Ankara says masterminded last month's failed coup.
