Synopsis:

This volume contains documents from archives in Belgrade covering topics and events from Portuguese history and Portuguese-Yugoslav relations between 1941 and 1974. This documentation gives an overview of those years, divided into two distinct periods divided by an ‘interregnum’ (1949-60), when diplomatic and party relations were suspended (in April 1948 the Yugoslav delegation was closed and relations were cut between the Portuguese and Yugoslav Communist parties).
Until the middle of 1945, the legation’s main activities were concerned with monitoring the war and its consequences. Then, connections were forged and support developed for the Portuguese anti-fascist opposition (MUNAF, MUD e PCP) through diplomats of a Yugoslavia that was very different to what it had been in 1941. After the interregnum (1950s), these contacts were resumed (FPLN, PCP and ASP/PSP) and were maintained, with greater or lesser intensity, until 1974. Similarly, in this period, there was Yugoslav support for the liberation movements in the Portuguese colonies (PAIGC, MPLA and FRELIMO).
