BEIJING — China’s top legislature approved a treaty of extradition between China and Barbados on Aug 31.

The 26-article extradition treaty covers issues such as extradition obligations, offenses eligible for extradition, reasons that can and should be used to refuse extradition, and the settlement of disputes, among others.

The ratification of the treaty is conducive to strengthening judicial cooperation between China and Barbados and will promote the development of the bilateral ties, said Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng.

The treaty was submitted to the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress for review at its bi-monthly session that runs from Aug 27 to 31.
