Justice ministers of Turkey and Bosnia and Herzegovina penned agreements Thursday to expand their cooperation on extradition of criminals and legal assistance.

Turkish Justice Minister Sadullah Ergin and his Bosnian counterpart Barisha Cholak inked two agreements aimed improving cooperation in fight against crime.

When implemented, the agreements will allow extradition, transfer of criminals between two countries, and transfer of the cases before courts, said a statement from the Bosnian Ministry of Justice.

"These agreements are very important, not only for our two ministries, but also for citizens of both countries. In order to fight crime, cooperation between states is extremely important,” Cholak told the media.

"We hope to be able to sign one more agreement, soon, by March next year," Ergin said.

"Turkey will always closely follow what is happening in Bosnia, and we will do our best to improve our relations and to help development of our countries in the future."
