Sweden and Finland must fulfill promises they made to Turkey in a deal to lift its veto on their NATO membership bids, including a pledge by Stockholm to extradite 73 “terrorists,” Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday, APA reports citing National Post.

Speaking at a news conference in Madrid at the end of a NATO summit, Erdogan said he saw the signing of the trilateral accord as recognition of Ankara’s sensitivities around terrorism and a “diplomatic victory” for Turkey.
