Turkey FM-No Real Action From Sweden Or Finland

NATO

Wires carrying comments from Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu stating that the Turkish gov't has seen 'no real action' from Sweden or Finland regarding Ankara's demands on extradition and the activities of Kurdish groups in both nations in exchange for supporting the Nordic nations' NATO bids.

  • Earlier today, Sweden confirmed that it would extradite a male to Turkey on fraud charges, the first such extradition since an agreement reached in June between Turkey, Sweden, and Finland to allow its NATO accession to progress.
  • Earlier in August, Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag said in a newspaper interview that “Turkey previously made demands about a total of 33 terrorists. We have renewed some of these requests and conveyed new ones to them, but so far we have not received any response".
  • The Turkish Grand National Assembly is yet to ratify the accession of both Sweden and Finland, meaning there remains the opportunity for the gov't to block both countries' path to membership, although that course of action would cause a major backlash from the US.
