Visiting Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Wednesday said that Dhaka and New Delhi are chalking out an Extradition Treaty in a bid to combat terrorism in South Asia, two days after both the neighboring nations inked five agreements including three pacts to fight terrorist activities.

"For Extradition Treaty, discussions are going on. We have signed three agreements. Side by side, discussions are going on the Extradition Treaty. To end terrorism, we want to cooperate. We can go to any extent to cooperate," Hasina told the media in the national capital as she folded up her three-day visit to India.

On Monday, India offered a one billion U.S. dollar line of credit to Bangladesh as the two neighboring nations inked a slew of pacts on fighting terror.

"Bangladesh is committed to eliminate all forms of terrorism from inside its territory. Bangladesh shall not allow its territory to be used for launching terrorist activities against any country in the neighborhood," said Hasina, who signed the five agreements with his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh.

Backing the commitment were three agreements on countering terrorism with both sides agreeing to extradite criminals convicted in either country.

Also an agreement on transfer of sentenced persons being held in either country's jails and an umbrella agreement on combating international terrorism, organized crime and drugs trafficking were signed.
