EP President Visit to Slovenia
European Parliament President, Antonio Tajani, was in Slovenia for an official visit in which he opened the new Europe House in Ljubljana with European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker.
On the occasion, he said:
“I am happy to be here for the opening of Europe House. This is the true house of Europeans. We need to strengthen our European identity and sense of belonging.”
“We need to be united if we want to compete in a globalised world.”
President Tajani met with Speaker of the National Assembly, Milan Brglez and the President of the Republic of Slovenia, Borut Pahor, before meeting with Prime Minister, Miro Cerar, to discuss current challenges.
"Slovenia is crucial for stability in the region. The sixtieth anniversary of the Treaty of Rome should not just be a ceremony, but also an occasion to bring the EU closer to its citizens through concrete responses to their concerns."
In a meeting with President Borut Pahor, the two leaders shared perspectives on developments in the region, including the Western Balkans.
President Tajani concluded his visit with an open exchange with Slovenian students.
