The Portuguese Minister of National Defence is on an official visit to India to meet with his counterpart Nirmala Sitharaman, in order to strengthen defence cooperation, particularly in the fields of training and industry.

The visit will begin with an homage at the National War Memorial followed by the meeting with the Indian counterpart. The visit ends with a meeting with the Chief of Integrated Defence Staff.

In 2017, the two countries have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Co-operation which envisaged their intention to hold high-level meetings, naval exercises, establishment of exchanges in training and research as well as holding talks on matters relating to international security and Defence Industries.
