At a meeting with Alexis Tsipras in the Greek capital, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa praised Greece on its courage and resistance in facing various challenges that Portugal also had to go through.

 

At the end of the day, we are just three months from a historical date for Greece, and the country knows it can count on Portugal at this moment that is so important, he said.
