Macron to visit Portugal this summer

Portugal’s president Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa has invited French president Emmanuel Macron to visit this country in 2024, but the date has been thrown to the winds by the current political crisis. Initially, says Expresso, the idea was for a visit in April. With the new government unlikely to be properly installed in time for such an event, it is now looking increasingly as if Mr Macron won’t be arriving before the summer – possibly not before September, says Expresso.
