Minister Logar in the North Atlantic Council meeting with NATO partners
Minister of Foreign Affairs Anže Logar took part in the second day of the regular meeting of the North Atlantic Council at the level of Ministers of Foreign Affairs, which was held via teleconference. Today’s meeting was mostly focused on exchanging views with the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, and the foreign ministers of Finland, Sweden, the Republic of Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, in particular, on the impact of China’s rise in the global community.
The ministers took the decision to continue exchanging views on China, together with partners. Furthermore, cooperation with like-minded countries and organisations, especially the European Union, is imperative for addressing some of the current challenges, such as disinformation. In this respect, joint efforts are the key to building greater resilience. NATO will maintain contacts with the Chinese side, above all at the level of the International Secretariat of the Alliance.
Today, NATO ministers of foreign affairs also held separate talks with their Ukrainian and Georgian counterparts, focusing on the situation in the Black Sea region. Slovenia supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of both countries within internationally recognised borders and also their Euro-Atlantic perspective.
