Slovenian President: Border Arbitration Ruling Will Be Implemented

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, June 24, 2019 – Slovenian President Borut Pahor said on Sunday that Slovenia wanted to have good relations with all its neighbours, including Croatia with which it is in dispute over the validity of the border arbitration process.

“The border has been defined. We need some patience and statesmanlike wisdom so that we wouldn’t make any mistakes because the arbitration ruling will be implemented sooner or later,” Pahor said.

He was speaking in an interview with Slovenian television ahead of Statehood Day, observed on June 25, focusing mostly on internal and European affairs.

Pahor said that he considered Croatia’s decision to leave the arbitration process in 2015 unacceptable, but that soon afterwards he decided to continue contacts and cooperation with Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, which has proved good.

Pahor said he would soon meet with Prime Minister Marjan Šarec to discuss the problem of the increasing number of illegal border crossings by migrants. He said that border security should be stepped up for the sake of people living in the border areas.

He said that the common migration policy, along with Brexit, should be among the priorities of the next European Commission in its first year in office.
