BUENOS AIRES, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- Argentine President Cristina Fernandez and visiting Uruguayan leader Jose Mujica signed several cooperation agreements on strengthening bilateral ties here Tuesday.

The agreements were signed after Fernandez met Mujica to discuss cooperation in border traffic control, police, geology, mining and agriculture.

Fernandez stressed the importance of dialogues which have allowed the two sides to narrow their differences that had hindered bilateral ties.

Disputes flared up between the two countries after Uruguay set up a paper mill by the Uruguay River in 2005. Argentina, which shares the river with Uruguay, blamed the mill for polluting the areas surrounding the river.

During their meeting, both leaders said the two countries are willing to continue bilateral integration process, as well as cooperation in political, economic, social and cultural issues.

"One of the keys is not only dialogue and integration, but also association. Being partners assures both parts to win," Fernandez said.

Mujica said his government is guided by a good-neighborliness policy in its relations with Argentina.

The two countries also agreed to establish an Argentinean-Uruguayan Business Council and a Binational Commission to promote their joint bid for hosting the World Cup in 2030.
