The Argentine and German governments signed on Monday a series of agreements on academy and cinematography during the visit by German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle.

Westerwelle was received by his Argentine counterpart Jorge Taiana, and later he met with President Cristina Fernandez in the inauguration of the German itinerant exhibition "Science Tunnel."

During Westerwelle's talks with Fernandez, Taiana and Argentine Education Minister Alberto Sileoni, the two sides signed an agreement to create the Argentine-German University Center.

Sileoni said that last year a group of German companies proposed creating an organized network to strengthen the cooperation between universities and institutes of both countries.

"It is an important initiative, because it will boost and attract students and researchers from both countries to main areas of didactics and researches. It will include financial and strategic cooperation of both countries," Sileoni said.

This network aims to promote the scientific and technological cooperation and exchange between the public and private institutions of both countries.

Meanwhile, Taiana and Westerwelle also signed an agreement on movie cooperation.
