BEIJING (Reuters) - China and European Union regulators have signed landmark agreements in aviation, which will boost cooperation in the sector between both regions, Chinese state media CCTV said on Monday.

The agreements were signed between the Civil Aviation Administration of China and the European Aviation Safety Agency, marking the first time China and EU have reached such a deal in the civil aviation sector, according to Chinese media CCTV.

The two agreements include one on air space security and another related to flights.
