Argentina, Mexico Sign Extradition Treaty

The presidents of Mexico and Argentina agreed to increase their cooperation in the fight against organized crime, signing an extradition treaty at a meeting in Mexico.

Argentina’s President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and her Mexican counterpart Felipe Calderon also signed a number of agreements relating to education and trade, reports El Universal.

“I would like to highlight Mexico and Argentina’s shared will to advance in the battle against transnational organized crime, a problem that today demands international cooperation,” said Calderon.

The news follows recent reports that Joaquin Guzman, alias “El Chapo,” the head of the Sinaloa Cartel and the most wanted man in Mexico, had been living in Argentina.
