U.S. Vice President Joe Biden told the government in Ankara that the United States strongly condemns last month's failed military coup in Turkey. Biden is visiting the longtime U.S. ally to strengthen relations that began to wobble amid disagreements on Turkish Kurds and Syria, but plummeted after Washington rejected an immediate extradition of a Turkish cleric living in the United States, whom Ankara accuses of orchestrating the coup. Zlatica Hoke reports.
