Secretary Rice Meets With Quartet in Portugal To Discuss Middle East
Secretary Rice :
"I am delighted to be here on my first official visit to Portugal, in fact, my first visit to Portugal and such a beautiful country that it is. ... I want to thank you ...for the leadership that you are showing in your new role as the presidency of the European Union. ... I look very much forward tonight to the Quartet meeting that you have arranged and want to thank Portugal for hosting that meeting. And it will be a very good meeting because I think we do have a kind of momentum now in the Middle East issue. But we've also had a chance to review some very important areas of potential cooperation in working together with Africa and working together with Latin America, so it has been a very wide-ranging discussion...

Secretary Rice visited Lisbon for meetings with senior officials in the Portuguese Government as well as a Middle East Quartet meeting.
