Taiwan and St Kitts and Nevis are in final negotiations on an extradition treaty, the government announced.

The talks began Monday in Basseterre.

“No country by itself alone can get rid of the intimidation, threat, presence and danger of crime, and that is why it is of utmost importance to work together to fight this scourge and create a suitable environment for all citizens,” said Taiwanese Ambassador Miguel Tsao. “I am so elated about the future signing of this extradition treaty to help reduce the volume of crime committed in either of our countries.”

Justice Minister and Attorney General Patrice Nisbett said St Kitts and Nevis embraced “our international partners in an effort to combat crime in both the local and international arena.”

“This treaty represents another monumental step towards the promotion of strong ties of international cooperation,” he said.

The discussions will lead to the organization of a task force, Tsao said.

The visiting delegation from Taiwan includes prosecutor Ju-chang Yu.
