"We want to leave behind our problems with the U.S.," Yıldırım said. Regarding the extradition process of Gulen, he said that Turkey has provided every document and evidence necessary for extradition.

Yıldırım also answered a question about opposition Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) chairman Devlet Bahçeli's remarks on the election threshold. "We will discuss and see what can be done.
