Pahor labelled peace a fundamental choice that needs to be nurtured on a daily basis; at the strategic level is needs to be upheld with decisions that strengthen international respect and trust, amicable resolution of disputes, and cooperation.

German Ambassador Werner Burkart stressed that the Elysee Treaty was a turning point in Franco-German relations and the development of Europe as a whole, noting that it was a key element in the construction of Europe as it is today.
