Ljubljana – Prime Minister Janez Janša hosted EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell for working dinner on Saturday evening to discuss Afghanistan and the Western Balkans, Janša’s office said in a press release.
The pair discussed the most topical challenges of the EU, with the focus on the situation in Afghanistan in the wake of the Taliban’s coming to power and the related migration challenges.
The Western Balkans were discussed as part of preparations for an EU summit with Western Balkan countries the Slovenian EU presidency will host in October, the office added.
Janša and Borrell met after Borrell attended informal meetings of EU foreign ministers and defence ministers in Slovenia earlier this week. Afghanistan featured prominently at both meetings.
