“I understand that those who, like President Zelensky, are experiencing a war always want more: more weapons, more military resources and more support. In this context, there are countries much richer and closer than Portugal that can give more than we have given, given that we have been giving everything we can and even, in many cases, things that we did not expect to be able to give”, said Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

The head of state spoke to journalists on the sidelines of the 12th congress of the Public Ministry Magistrates' Union (SMMP), in Vilamoura, to reinforce the limited availability of military means that can make a difference in the war with Russia.

“We understand that we are doing all that is possible under the circumstances, that is, at a political and diplomatic level, everything we can; at the military level: within our means. Whoever has availabilities and capabilities that we don't have, can provide those capabilities, we can within our limit. In terms of reception, our position is very simple: anyone who wants to come is welcome,” he said.
