Ministry of National Defense

Last update on 01-08-2014

The Navy is an essential force in the protection of the last external border that Portugal has in the European space - maritime border - where can materialize a high set of threats to sovereignty - old and new, the economy and the ability to influence within the alliances and the international community, especially in an almost archipelagic country such as Portugal.

The Navy's mission is to cooperate in an integrated way, the military defense of the Republic, by conducting naval operations and missions under the international commitments and public interest missions.
