Quote of the day 16th June 2023 - celebrating 650 years of friendship

"650 years ago today, the Anglo-Portuguese Treaty was signed, beginning a long union of friendship and cooperation. 🤝

Today, the UK and Portugal are #NATO allies working together for European security and stability."

Ministry of Defence tweet, also showing UK Secretary of state Ben Wallace shaking hands with his Portugese opposite number to celebrate 650 years of friendship.

It is something quite remarkable: first England, and then Britain, have been allies with Portugal for six and a half centuries.
