Under the protocol, the two ministries will promote cooperation in the education domain and exchange expertise and information with a view to developing scientific research.

Following the signing ceremony, the justice minister said that the protocol aims at providing judges with online access to references and helping researchers in the judicial and legislative fields to continue their post-graduate studies.
