Speaking from Dublin, Ireland, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa
answered journalists' questions about Liz Truss' resignation and the Iberian
gas pipeline agreement.
The President of the Republic showed "concern"
about the resignation of Liz Truss, justifying the "instability" that
this resignation causes, mainly regarding the consequences "in the
financial markets at a global level" and not only in Portugal.
The British prime minister announced her resignation this
Thursday (20 October) in a statement outside her Downing Street official residence in London, 45 days after taking office.
Truss remains in office as prime minister until a successor
to the party's leadership is chosen.
When asked about the Iberian gas pipeline agreement, the
Head of State considered that the "green energy corridor will be very
important for Europe".
