LISBON, June 24 - Prime Minister Narendra Modi today held talks with his Portuguese counterpart Antonio Costa and discussed ways to further intensify bilateral relations.

Modi, who arrived here on the first leg of his three-nation tour, said his brief visit will further strengthen relations between India and Portugal.

�Advancing bilateral engagements. PM @narendramodi & PM @antoniocostapm discuss ways to further intensify bilateral relations,� External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay tweeted along with some photographs.

The two sides are expected to sign some agreements. The new pacts in taxation, science, youth affairs and sports outline the expanding scope of India�s ties with Portugal, Modi said.

Earlier in the day, departing from protocol, Portuguese Foreign Minister Augusto Santos Silva received Modi at the airport. Modi is the first Indian Prime Minister to visit Portugal on a bilateral trip, Baglay said.

Before leaving for Lisbon, Modi had said that during his meeting with Costa, the two leaders will build on their recent discussions and review the progress of various joint initiatives and decisions.

The highlight of Modi�s four-day three-nation visit will be the US leg as Modi will be meeting President Donald Trump for the first time on June 26 in Washington. Modi will also be meeting some prominent American CEOs there.

After the US visit, Modi will travel to the Netherlands on June 27 where he will have a meeting with the Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and call on King Willem-Alexander and meet Queen Maxima. � PTI
