disagree  Rum: إن مصطلح تعاون يخلق إشكالية قانونية من ناحية المسؤلية و طبيعة العلاقة أنصح بإستبداله ب تفاهم

مذكرة


Explanation:
As far as diplomatic language is concerned, it is a Mudhakarra. You can call it مذكرة تعاون because of the context, but it is not the agreement itself - note: "purpose of an MOA is to have a written understanding of the agreement between parties", which means that it actually EXPLAINS the agreement.

مذكرة تفاهم


Explanation:
كلمة مذكرة أفضل من إتفاقية حيث أن الأولى تعنى بالخطوط العريضة المتفق عليها حتى يتسنى بعد ذلك الخوض بالتفاصيل في الإتفاقية
