8.1. International agreements with third countries
In March 2021, the Council approved a mandate for the European Commission to open negotiations on international agreements with 13 third countries for Eurojust. The Decision of the Council opens the door for negotiations on agreements concerning the exchange of information with Algeria, Argentina, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey. The list is based on the four-year strategy Eurojust adopted in 2019, in consultation with the Commission. The four-year strategy also identifies a list of international organisations for possible operational cooperation.
