The lawyer for the chief Paris attacks suspect said his client is not fighting extradition to France, which is seeking his extradition from Belgium to face potential terrorism charges.
Salah Abdeslam's lawyer, Sven Mary, told reporters in Brussels on Thursday that he asked for a one-month delay on any transfer while he studies the large dossier.
He said that Abdeslam "wants to leave for France as quickly as possible."
