  • The Turkish President speaks after the unofficial results of his referendum were announced on Sunday

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday he would meet his USA counterpart Donald Trump in Washington on May 16-17, in their first meeting since Trump took office in January.

Prime Minister Binali Yildirim, whose post will cease to exist once Erdogan's all-powerful presidency proposed under the referendum comes into effect, said everyone had a right to complain - but it would not change the outcome.

"I hope and pray that this tete-a-tete meeting in the United States in May will lay the foundation for a stronger cooperation". Gulen denies the charges.

Asked about his potential future relationship with Trump, Erdogan said: "It s very early to comment".

The HDP party, whose two co-leaders were jailed a year ago, said it was determined to pursue legal appeals, but appeared to concede there was little prospect of success. "Every time we spoke to one another, I have become more hopeful".

He also said that Trump s background as a successful businessman was a help.

He also expressed confidence that Washington would extradite Gulen, saying: "I believe president Trump will do what president Obama failed to do".

USA denies misleading about armada heading for Korea
By the time Pentagon said USA was sending an aircraft carrier, vessels were temporarily headed in the opposite direction. Like Spicer, he said it will wind up near the Korean Peninsula to reassure USA allies.

The Turkish government has repeatedly requested Gulen's extradition, while the Obama administration has said extradition is a lengthy, demanding legal procedure.

"The Constitutional Court has no right and authority to review the referendum according to the Constitution and the conventions that Turkey is party to", Bozdag told A Haber, adding that the Turkish constitution "explicitly rules that the decisions of the Supreme Election Board (YSK) are final and no authority can be resorted to against these decisions".

As for the Constitutional Court, "this is not part of its jurisdiction" while the European judicial instance "does not have a mandate this is a domestic affair", said Erdogan.

Asked whether the European Court of Human Rights could issue a ruling on the case, an ECHR official said that anyone could submit an appeal to the court once they have exhausted their options for justice at home, but that it would be hard to say in advance whether the court has jurisdiction. "This is the will of the people".

Held under a state of emergency in place since a failed coup last July, it was criticized by European election observers who said the decision to allow unstamped ballot papers to be counted had removed a main safeguard against voting fraud. In all, a total of 38 arrest warrants were issued.

Erdogan stressed that Turkish Supreme Election Board's (YSK) decision to reject referendum annulment requests filed by a number of opposition parties and some ordinary citizens is the final one and can not be challenged by any other institution.
