At the invitation of the Slovenian Foreign Affairs Minister Anže Logar, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Romania Bogdan Lucian Aurescu kicked off an official visit to Slovenia. The visit is intended to strengthen friendly relations between Slovenia and Romania and deepen cooperation between the two countries, both at regional and international level, as well as on all issues that are crucial for European citizens.
Minister Logar and Minister Aurescu agreed that Slovenia and Romania are connected by good and friendly relations and regular and constructive cooperation within the European Union, NATO and regional and international fora. Like Slovenia, Romania is involved in the Three Seas Initiative. Minister Logar thus reaffirmed Slovenia’s interest in connecting with Romania in strategic infrastructure projects of common interest.
