a meaning difference between "an agreement" and "agreement"


According to defintions by all dictionaries, there is a meaning difference between "an agreement" and "agreement", but to my ears and in my native language, there is not meaning difference, so I am really confused still.


[COUNTABLE] an arrangement or decision about what to do, made by two or more people, groups, or organizations

 Management announced that it had reached an agreement with the unions.


[UNCOUNTABLE] the situation when people have the same opinion or have made the same decision about something

 The committee finally reached agreement on two important issues.



Could you clear up my confusion again?


Thank you so much as usual in advance.
