Pahor: EU-Balkans summit will decide Slovenia's future actions


If the meeting brings solutions that will not be favourable for Slovenia, the country will act on its own before it is too late, he said.

If no favourable solution is found, Slovenia will act alone and will not wait for Austria or Germany to do so first, the president pointed out.

"Slovenia cannot become a pocket in which refugees would be stuck if the Austrian and German borders close, because the country could not handle that," the president warned.

He said that the Slovenian and Croatian prime ministers, Miro Cerar and Zoran Milanović, would hold a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of tomorrow's summit, which was to be followed by a meeting of Slovenia's National Security Council.

Pahor visited the Brežice area at the invitation of Brežice Mayor Ivan Molan today. After being briefed on the situation on the ground as the supreme commander of the Armed Forces at the Cerklje ob Krki army barracks, he went on to see the situation at the refugee centres himself.

He took a helicopter ride to Rigonce and then made a stop at Dobova, where he was joined by Interior Ministry State Secretary Boštjan Šefic.

The president thanked all those dealing with the refugees for their selfless and good work.

So far the president has visited the refugee centres in Postojna and Šentilj.
