ISLAMABAD, FEB. 26. Pakistan says it is prepared to negotiate an extradition treaty with India as and when the two countries resume dialogue to resolve all outstanding differences, including Kashmir.
Responding to a specific question on the demand made by India for extradition of 20 persons, the Pakistan Foreign Minister, Abdul Sattar, told the Pakistan daily, Pakistan Observer, in an interview that there was no connection with the Indian Parliament attack on December 13 and the list forwarded by New Delhi.
The Minister termed the list of 20 criminals and terrorists handed over by India ``fictitious'' on the ground that it contained names of persons who had been involved in crimes long before the December 13 attack.
Mr. Sattar told the daily that a treaty could be negotiated between the two countries under which neither country would provide refuge to criminals.
