PRESS RELEASE 72
Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation visits Slovenia
09/04/2019

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, Josep Borrell, has visited Slovenia in response to an invitation from his counterpart, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Miro Cerar. Minister Josep Borrell also held meetings with the President of the Republic, Borut Pahor; the Prime Minister, Marjan Sarec and the President of the Foreign Policy Committee of the National Assembly, Matjaz Nemec, who was accompanied by three other members of the Committee.
 
The aim of the presence of Minister Josep Borrell has been to further strengthen bilateral relations that are going through a very good time, given our similarities and wide margin for agreement as EU member countries, with a solid Mediterranean and Euro-Atlantic identity.
 
In his different meetings, the minister has been able to discuss in particular depth with his Slovenian interlocutors various issues on the political agenda of both countries, as well as, at Community level, the forthcoming elections to the European Parliament, the election of the presidents of the new Commission and Council, the next Multiannual Financial Framework, the situation in the Western Balkans, the development of Brexit or the management of migratory flows. They had also the chance to review other issues on the international agenda such as Euro-Atlantic relations, the situation in Venezuela and North Africa.
 
Finally, the minister was able to confirm the interest that exists in Slovenia for the Spanish language and culture, and the commercial and investment opportunities for Spanish companies in the country. Both elements help to further deepen bilateral relations.
