Portugal to Upgrade Ties with Israel

Download PDF for this date

Portugal will soon upgrade its diplomatic representation in Israel.

President Mario Soares of Portugal told Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres here Sunday that his country has decided to appoint a resident ambassador to Israel and will do so “in a matter of months.”

Portugal presently has a non-resident ambassador accredited to Israel. Israel maintains a full diplomatic mission in Lisbon, headed by a career foreign service official with ambassadorial rank.
