Turkey will resume extradition requests from Sweden and Finland for individuals it considers terrorists after the countries reached an agreement on Nordic countries' NATO membership applications, said the Minister of Justice Bekir Bozdag.

Dossiers on six members of the PKK, six members of the movement of the Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen have already been sent to Finland, a decision is pending on the extradition of 10 members of the Gülen movement and 11 members of the PKK in Sweden, Bozdag said.

In the text of a memorandum signed by the three countries on Tuesday, Finland and Sweden agreed to expeditiously and thoroughly consider requests for the deportation or extradition of suspected terrorists in accordance with the European Convention on Extradition.

On Tuesday, he said that the signed memorandum did not specify the persons to be extradited and that Finland would continue to comply with European rules in its extradition decisions.

Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson said that Sweden will continue to follow local and international law on extradition. It depends on what information we get from Turkey in this area, she told Reuters.
