    Agreement or agreement?

    Shall I put the definite article here? If not, do I need to capitalize the "Agreement?"
    "Particularly, an Agreement between theMinistry of Agriculture of the Republic of Armenia and the Ministry of RuralDevelopment and Food of the Hellenic Republic was signed?"

    Re: Agreement or agreement?

    If what they signed had an official title containing the word "Agreement" then it should be capitalised. If not, then it should not be capitalised. The indefinite article is correct in that sentence. If they had specified the name of the agreement, the definite article would be appropriate.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Agreement or agreement?

    Hence, a Memorandum of Mutual Understanding as a name of a document must be always capitalized. Am I right?
    Here is an example: "
    Particularly, an agreement between theMinistry of Agriculture of the Republic of Armenia and the Ministry of RuralDevelopment and Food of the Hellenic Republic and the Memorandum of Mutual Understandingbetween the Armenian Development Agency and the Greek-Armenian Chamber ofCommerce and Industry were signed."
