Turkey awaits the extradition of 33 terrorism suspects from Sweden and Finland.

Justice Minister Bekir Bozdağ on Wednesday said that Turkey would remind the countries of the extradition following the signing of a memorandum.

Bozdağ said; “the files of six PKK members and six FETÖ members wait in Finland while the files of 11 PKK members and 10 FETÖ members are in Sweden."

In a deal with Sweden and Finland, Turkey has demanded that the two countries extradite wanted terrorists and lift arms restrictions imposed on the country.

On Tuesday, it had also agreed to lift its objection to Sweden and Finland joining NATO.

NATO's Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg declared there is an agreement that paves the way for Finland and Sweden to join NATO.

This is as Turkey had opposed the two countries from joining NATO over their support of terrorist organisations like the PKK and the YPG group.
