US assistant secretary of state to visit Slovenia

Washington – Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs Michele Sison will pay a visit to Vienna, Rome and Ljubljana, the US Department of State announced on Friday, but it has not yet revealed when exactly the visit will take place.

In Ljubljana, Sison will meet with Slovenian officials “to discuss shared interests at the United Nations”, including Slovenia’s bid for a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council for the period from the beginning of 2024 to the end of 2025.

Sison’s travel to Europe will be aimed at discussing “a wide range of U.S. multilateral priorities, including the food insecurity and humanitarian needs triggered by Russia’s premeditated and unprovoked further invasion of Ukraine”, said the Department of State in a press release.
