Legislature deliberates extradition treaties with Australia, France
Adjust font size:

China's lawmakers on Tuesday began their deliberations on extradition treaties with Australia and France.

The bills were submitted by the State Council, the country's Cabinet, for review to the second session of the Standing Committee of the 11th National People's Congress (NPC), the top legislature.

China signed an extradition treaty with Australia in September after two rounds of negotiations, and with France in March 2007, said Vice Foreign Minister Wu Dawei.

As China's political and economic relations with these two countries were intensifying, it was necessary to sign such treaties so as to effectively combat crimes and arrest criminals, he said.

Experts say the treaties' contents conform to the basic principles and judicial practice of China's laws, and serve the country's interests. They will help promote China's judicial cooperation with these two countries and propel their friendly relations.

The treaties are expected to be ratified during the session that lasts until Thursday.
