The Turkish government has accused Gulen of a failed coup last July in attempt to oust Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Analysis: Kanter was detained in Romania over the weekend after being informed that his Turkish passport was cancelled. Kanter told reporters on Monday that he would seek American citizenship.
