The Queen looks like a curious girl who discovered something interesting.

The President of the Republic, Cavaco Silva, presented today the King of Norway, Harald V, with the Grand Collar of the Order of Santiago, and Queen Sonja with the Supreme Cross of the Order of Christ. The Norwegian sovereigns, ir return, presented the Head of the Portuguese State with the Supreme Cross of the Order of Saint Olav and Maria Cavaco Silva with the Supreme Cross of the Order of Merit.

The presidential couple presented also Harald V and Sonja of Norway with a Silver Goblet with the Portuguse arms engraved, while the presidential couple received a crystal piece from the King and Queen.

As homage to Portugal's greatest importation from Norway, the main dish served for today's lunch was codfish. For dessert, there was a milk-cream with wild fruits.

SIC Online - Presidente admite "especulação" nos combustÃ*veis

The President of the Republic expressed his wish to strengthen the "already excellent" bilateral relations between Lisbon and Oslo. In return, Harald V, who is accompanied by a vast ministerial and enterprise delegation, confirmed the good bilateral relations, but stressed that "there is always space for improvement" and anticipated a reinforcement of the Norwegian touristic flow to Portugal, after this State visit.

PR: Cavaco Silva chama atenção dos Reis da Noruega para "sofisticação tecnológica" de empresas portuguesas - NotÃ*cias Lusa - Sapo Notícias

The President of the Republic, Cavaco Silva, considered today's visit as a very important contribute to the reinforcement of the bilateral relations, and stressed the current "technologic sophistication" of many Portuguese and Norwegian companies.

In his speech during the gala dinner, Cavaco Silva remembered that Portugal was one of the very first countries to recognize the young Norwegian Nation, in 1905. He also remembered that, in 1472, a three-ship maritime expedition, promoted by Kings Afonso V and Christian I, left Bergen, with at least two Portuguese noblemen: João Vaz Corte-Real and Álvaro Martins Homem: "I wish that today we may once again reach together the New World of chances, represented by the reinforcement of our cooperation".
