Nikolic received the decoration from Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

The Serbian president then presented his Portuguese counterpart with the Order of the Republic of Serbia on a sash.

Both decorations were given for the contribution of the two presidents to improving relations between their countries.

Nikolic and De Sousa held a face-to-face meeting today, while their two delegations also met.

The delegations then placed wreaths at the grave of Portugal's national poet Luis de Camoes.

Nikolic on Wednesday started his two-day official visit to Portugal that marks 135 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
