United States-Japan Treaty on Extradition
Message to the Senate Transmitting the Treaty.
April 4, 1979

To the Senate of the United States:

With a view to receiving the advice and consent of the Senate to ratification, I transmit herewith the Treaty of Extradition Between the United States of America and Japan, together with a related exchange of notes, signed at Tokyo on March 3, 1978.

I transmit also, for the information of the Senate, the report of the Department of State with respect to the treaty.

The treaty is one of a series of modern extradition treaties being negotiated by the United States. It expands the list of extraditable offenses to include narcotics offenses, aircraft hijacking, bribery, and obstruction of justice, as well as many other offenses not now covered by our existing extradition treaty with Japan. Upon entry into force, it will terminate and supersede the existing Treaty of Extradition and the Supplementary Convention of Extradition between the United States and Japan.

This treaty will make a significant contribution to international cooperation in law enforcement. I recommend that the Senate give early and favorable consideration to the treaty and give its advice and consent to ratification.

JIMMY CARTER
The White House,
April 4, 1979.
