Agartala: India and Bangladesh are expected to sign an extradition treaty in the near future, India's High Commissioner to Bangladesh Pankaj Saran said here Wednesday.

"If New Delhi and Dhaka signed the treaty, it would be a positive impact on the security situation of the two neighbours," Saran told reporters here.

"Bangladesh has indicated in the last foreign ministers' joint consultative committee meeting in New Delhi May 8 that they are ready to continue negotiation and send a delegation to India and vice-versa to discuss on the extradition treaty," he said.

"Definitely, if India signs an extradition agreement with Bangladesh, it would have a constructive impact on our security concerns. We would like to sign the treaty at the earliest and it is our view would be good for both the nations," he said.

Saran is on a four-day tour to Meghalaya and Tripura to study the projects agreed between India and Bangladesh.
