MADRID, August 10. /TASS/. Portugal’s authorities have not ruled out that they could ask Russia to provide assistance in putting out wildfires raging in the country, Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa said on Wednesday.
"We made a decision to activate an early warning of the European Civil Protection Mechanism and also a bilateral agreement with Russia to take measures if needed in case the situation remains unchanged by the end of the week," the prime minister was quoted by the Publico newspaper as saying.
Several major wildfires continue affecting Portugal. The biggest fire in Funchal, on the island of Madeira, has killed at least three and injured 300 others. The republic’s authorities have already requested assistance of Spain in extinguishing fires.
