Today, Minister Dr Anže Logar held a separate meeting with the new Foreign Minister of Poland Zbigniew Rau on the sidelines of the 15th Bled Strategic Forum. The ministers advocated for further strengthening of cooperation between Slovenia and Poland both at the bilateral level and within regional and supra-regional initiatives. Slovenia and Poland are EU partners and allies within NATO, sharing numerous positions on major international issues.
Their talks focused on cooperation in building the strategic infrastructure in Central Europe. Minister Logar stressed that Slovenia is interested in improving digital and transport connectivity with the rest of the region and is thus planning to enhance its cooperation efforts within the Three Seas Initiative.
The ministers also touched on current foreign policy issues, particularly the current situation in Belarus and possible EU responses.
They endorsed the EU enlargement to the Western Balkans. Minister Logar thanked his Polish colleague for excellent cooperation in the drafting of the reform of EU enlargement methodology and Poland's active role in the enlargement process.
On the margins of the forum, Minister Logar also received Deputy Assistant Secretary for Central Europe and Holocaust Issues Matthew G. Boyse for a courtesy meeting.
