New Delhi, Nov. 26 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated Portugal’s Antonio Costa and expressed his desire to work with him to strengthen bilateral ties between both nations.

“I congratulate Mr. Antonio Costa on becoming the PM of Portugal. I look forward to working with him to strengthen bilateral ties,” tweeted Prime Minister Modi.

Costa, the leader of Portugal’s Socialist Party, was named the Prime Minister and tasked with forming a government on Wednesday after weeks of political instability caused by an inconclusive election last month.

Costa traces his paternal roots to Goa. (ANI)
