The U.S. will decide whether to extradite Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) leader Fetullah Gulen to Turkey in connection with the 2016 assassination of the Russian ambassador in Ankara when Turkey submits the relevant documents, a report said Monday.
“We will review any materials the Turkish government may provide in this regard and will make any decisions about extradition on the basis or the facts and relevant U.S. laws,” Justice Department spokesperson Nicole Navas Oxman told Russian state-run news agency Tass.

Karlov was delivering a speech at the Contemporary Arts Gallery in Ankara’s central Cankaya district when the assassin opened fire on the diplomat, critically wounding him.
He was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Altintas was killed in a subsequent shootout with police in the gallery.
The assassination occurred at a time when Turkish-Russian relations were being restored. An investigation found that the assassin was linked to FETO, which tried to portray the murder as the work of an extremist group.
Turkish prosecutors said Altintas personally knew Gulen. Five people, including three police officers, were arrested in a probe into Karlov’s killing.
