    Welcome to the forum, Ali.

    Please note my corrections to your punctuation etc.

    As assistance and cooperation are very closely connected in this context, you can consider them to be a single unit and use is.

    Although are is correct too.

    You need to put quotes around examples. Like English Freak, I also read this as part of your question, and was wondering where your example was.

    Everyone: Put quotes around example sentences and words.
