Indonesia and Singapore on Friday stressed the importance on law cooperation despite no ratification on extradition agreement between two countries, a minister said here.

Indonesia's Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa told reporters that cooperation between both countries' law enforcers still could be facilitated.

"However, the form of the cooperation must be adjusted with rules in Indonesia and Singapore," said Natalegawa after meeting his Singaporean counterpart K. Shanmugan.

He said that actually, both countries have signed the extradition agreement and the Defense Cooperation Agreement in 2007. Natalegawa said that currently, both sides agreed to "see and take steps" in creating condition conducive to ratification of the treaties.

He said that Shanmugan has said that they should let the problem flows naturally.

"One thing for sure is that our legal cooperation must be put forward," he said.
