Israel and Brazil signed agreements on Sunday over legal assistance and prisoner transfer between the two countries.

The agreements come after the two countries signed an extradition treaty in late 2009.

Israel was represented in the three-day long negotiations by Gal Levertov, Director of Department of International Affairs of the State Attorney's Office and his deputy Yitzhak Bloom. Minister Rodrigo do Amaral Souza, head of immigration and legal affairs at Brazil's Foreign Ministry headed the Brazilian delegation.

Israel's ambassador to Brazil, Rafi Eldad, welcomed the negotiations, dubbing them an important milestone in the close relations between the two countries and in the friendship between the Israeli and Brazilian peoples.
