Praia, Jun 11 (Inforpress) – The President of the Republic of Portugal, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, highlighted the Cabo Verdean community for the contribution it has given to Portugal, stating that it “deeply vibrates with Portuguese life and with the heart”.
Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, who made the official speech at the commemorations of the Day of Portugal, Camões and Communities, which took place at the Portuguese School of Cabo Verde (EPCV), reminded us, thankfully, that without Cabo Verde, had not won the Euro 2016 and also had not won Sunday, 9, the League of Nations.
The Portuguese President emphasized that the connection between the two countries is natural and results both from the Portuguese community living in Cabo Verde and from the Cabo Verdean community in Portugal.
“One of the strategic assets of Cabo Verde is exactly one of the strategic assets of Portugal, being a platform between cultures, civilizations, oceans and continents”, said the Portuguese Head of State, for whom “there are not many diaspora” as Cabo Verde and Portugal.
