Ukraine High on Agenda of Security Conference


The panel featured Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliev, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili, Serbian Prime Minister Aleksander Vučić and Croatian Foreign Minister Vesna Pusić and focused on the Ukraine crisis.

Ukraine also featured prominently in Pahor's meetings at the conference, including with Estonian counterpart Toomas Hendrik Ilves and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

In talks with Lavrov, Pahor reiterated Slovenia's support for Ukraine's territorial integrity and warned that the civilian population may not pay the price of the repositioning of superpowers and the assertion of spheres of interest.

Pahor and Lavrov agreed, according to the president's office, that EU-Russia political dialogue needed to continue as ways are sought towards a peaceful resolution of the conflict.

In this context, Pahor expressed support to Franco-German activities to reach a political agreement on Ukraine.

Pahor and Ilves meanwhile agreed that the situation was worrying and called for determined and permanent solution to the conflict based on the Minsk agreement, the president's office said.

In the evening Pahor was scheduled to hold talks with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
