breeding rabbits that are related

Hi
I just purchased 2 mini rex kits and did not read their papers and found out they are brother and sister, same mom and dad but 2 different litters.

Both come from decent pedigree but I planned to breed them. And now concerned about genetic problems. Is it ok to breed them?

I told the seller, when I bought them, what my intentions were, so assumed her being a breeder herself would know not to sell me rabbits related.

Thank you for any help.
