President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday that Fetullah Terrorist Organization's (FETO) U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen will be brought to Turkey "sooner or later, Anadolu Agency reports.

Speaking to lawmakers at the parliamentary group of his Justice and Development (AK) Party in the capital Ankara, Erdogan reiterated that a total of 80 FETO members abroad have been brought back to Turkey so far.

"The situation of the head of these terrorists, who feels safe in Pennsylvania, will not be different. Sooner or later we will get to him," said Erdogan.

Erdogan said FETO members "who betrayed this country, will get a befitting response".

FETO orchestrated the defeated July 2016 coup in Turkey which left 250 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

Ankara also accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary.

Erdogan also said 4,205 terrorists have been neutralized so far as part of Operation Olive Branch in Syria’s Afrin region.
