Foreign Minister Abdulaziz Kamilov said on April 14 that Akilov had been recruited by the Islamic State (IS) militant group after he left Uzbekistan in 2014 and settled in Sweden.
Justice Minister Morgan Johansson said his country needed to "close the gaps" in existing terrorism legislation, with the move coming five days after a deadly truck attack in central Stockholm.
Rakhmat Akilov is accused of being the driver of a truck which killed four people in Stockholm on April 7th. His lawyer, Johan Eriksson, told the court that his client had admitted to the crime.
Russian state news agency Tass reported Wednesday that a police source in Uzbekistan said Akilov had been wanted there for extremist connections.
He had gone underground after his application for Swedish residency was rejected past year, police said.
He is suspected of driving the truck into pedestrians on Drottninggatan (Queen Street), a busy shopping street in the center of Stockholm, on Friday before crashing it into a department store.
Police say Akilov has expressed sympathies with extremist organisations.
