Potentials of cooperation with Portugal to be used

BELGRADE - Serbia and Portugal need to make considerable efforts together so as to use all potentials of their cooperation, Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic stated on Wednesday during a meeting with Portuguese Minister of Foreign Affairs Rui Machete.

Unfortunately, the two countries' economic cooperation is now at a minimum level, and there is no justifiable reason for that, Nikolic said as released by his press office.
“This is something we will change together so as to create a better future perspective for the citizens of Serbia and Portugal,” the president said.
Minister Machete said that Portugal lends strong support to Serbia's EU pathway.
Portugal has high hopes for Serbia, particularly in the period when it presides over the OSCE, to use its reputation to contribute to solving numerous serious problems in Europe, Machete said.
