American Ambassador Yuri Kim and the Minister of Justice Etilda Gjonaj signed the extradition treaty with the USA and Albania.

Article 7 of this Treaty states that if a person has been sentenced to death in the United States and is apprehended in Albania, extradition shall take place only if the "Requesting State" (America) guarantees to the "Requested State" (Albania) that, the convict will not be sentenced to death.

The wanted persons from Albania to the USA or vice versa according to this treaty are arrested with a term of 60 days until the full arrival of the extradition file, and in case this material is delayed, the wanted person can be released but the request for extradition is not canceled.

The only case where extradition in the interest of the US or Albania will be automatically denied is when the offense has a political and military character under Article 4.
