HELSINKI - The trilateral memorandum that Turkey, Finland and Sweden signed on Tuesday to confirm Turkish support for the Nordic countries' bid to join NATO does not list individuals for extradition, Finnish President Sauli Niinisto told reporters.

Niinisto said the memorandum, which will be made public only later, describes principles for extraditions related to terrorism, not individual citizens.

Up until Tuesday, Turkey had blocked bids by Sweden and Finland to join the Western military alliance, accusing them of supporting groups Ankara views as terrorists.
