Other questions about "Agreement"

“They agreed to our proposal that they should not invade any more countries”
Q: I just wanted to let you know that I have received the signed agreement today. I will ask our Vice President and President to sign on them and send one signed copy to you once ready. Does this sound natural?
A: ‎I just wanted to let you know that I have received the agreement today. I will ask our Vice President and President to sign them and send a signed copy to you once it's ready.

minor changes, removed "signed" since it hasn't been signed yet in context, also removed "on" since you would just say "sign them" and not "sign on them". You would only use "on" if you said something like "I will ask them to sign ON the line". And changed "one signed copy" to "a signed copy"
Q: To express agreement, we can you the following phrases.
• I didn't do well. Neither did I.
• I hate giving presentations. So do I.
• I couldn't sleep last night. Neither could I.

Would I say "me too" instead of these phrases?
A: I believe "Me too" could be used on the second one, but not the first or third.
For those, maybe you could use "Me neither", because the question was in negative form.
