Sept 05, Colombo: The Sri Lankan government says it is beneficial for Sri Lanka to enter into an Extradition Treaty with the Russian Federation.

According to the government such an Extradition Treaty with the Russian Federation would enable Sri Lanka to request for the extradition of persons of concern who have engaged in illegal acts in the country and sought refuge in Russia, for criminal prosecution or execution of sentences.

Sri Lanka has signed an Extradition Treaty with the United States in 1999.

The proposal, made by the President Mahinda Rajapaksa in his capacity as the Minister of Defense and Urban Development, to sign the treaty between the two countries, has received Cabinet approval.
