Mexico and Argentina, building on increasing trade and business links in the past few years, vowed Monday to further expand the scope of their bilateral relationship.

The two countries signed a raft of agreements on education, agriculture, climate change, international trade and public security after visiting Argentine President Cristina Fernandez held talks with her Mexican counterpart Felipe Calderon.

The two sides also inked an extradition treaty, which the Mexican leader said was necessary to "combat transnational organized crime, a problem that today demands true international cooperation."

Fernandez arrived in Mexico on Sunday. The visit underlined the growing economic ties between Mexico and Argentina. Calderon said the annual trade between the two countries had grown by 400 percent over the past decade and it currently stood at 2.9 billion U.S. dollars.

Mexico is also home to one of the largest expatriate Argentine communities.

"Our commitment is to continue deepening our relationship" with Mexico, Fernandez said.
