Türkiye expects Sweden, Finland to extradite terrorist suspects

Türkiye expects Sweden and Finland to extradite terrorist suspects affiliated with the PKK and the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), Turkish justice minister Bekir Bozdag said Wednesday.

Speaking to reporters after an event in the capital Ankara, Bozdag reiterated that the Nordic countries should keep the promise made to Türkiye.

Bozdag said Ankara expects the countries to extradite PKK and FETO terrorist suspects to Türkiye. “The files are waiting: for six PKK members and six FETO members in Finland; 10 FETO and 11 PKK members in Sweden,” he said.

The minister was referring to an agreement signed between Türkiye, Sweden and Finland on Tuesday on the sidelines of the NATO summit in Madrid. As part of the agreement, Türkiye withdrew an objection to the membership of Sweden and Finland to NATO. In return, the Nordic countries will address Ankara's concern over terrorism and lift an arms embargo on Türkiye.
