According to exclusive information of IBNA, the request submitted by the Slovenian Foreign Ministry to participate in the third informal meeting of European States of the Mediterranean was not accepted.

The stance of Slovenia in the refugee issue was the reason why the Greek diplomacy did not allow the request for Slovenia’s participation in the conference, held on 25-26 February in Limassol, to be accepted, despite the efforts of the Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs for the opposite.
