Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag said that a delegation from the Swedish Ministry of Justice will visit Ankara early next month to discuss the extradition of people involved in terrorist crimes.
This came in a press statement made by Bozdag on Monday after a government meeting at the Presidential Complex in the capital, Ankara.
He added that discussions are continuing with Finland and Sweden to extradite wanted persons and criminals, noting that they are waiting for the two countries to hand over to Ankara wanted by the terrorist organizations “FETO” and “PKK”.
He explained that a delegation from the Swedish Ministry of Justice will visit Ankara on October 5-6 to hold talks with Turkish officials on the extradition of persons involved in terrorist crimes.
In late June, Turkey, Sweden and Finland signed a tripartite memorandum of understanding regarding the two countries’ membership in NATO, in which they pledged full cooperation with Ankara in combating terrorist organizations.
