Andersson commented Svenska Dagbladetille In Madrid after the NATO meeting. Andersson responds to criticism that he has chosen NATO and Turkey over the Kurds.
“I don’t share this picture. We continue to comply with national and international law in this matter, ”says Andersson.
“I stand 100% behind the contract”.
Mr Andersson stated that if the Swedish authorities agreed to the deportation of the persons in question in the light of Swedish law and existing information, it would be carried out.
Legal– and the Minister of the Interior Johansson commented on the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheterillethat Swedish nationals will not be extradited because Sweden is governed by Swedish law applied by independent courts. Thus, extradition decisions are not the responsibility of politicians.

On Wednesday, Turkey said it was demanding the extradition of 33 people from Finland and Sweden.
“Sweden has respected the agreement with Turkey, which we think makes sense and which we can defend. I assume that Turkey and Finland think the same way, ”says Linde.
“However, we did not intend to oppose our own legislation.”
