At the ministerial breakfast of the Informal Ministerial Network for the International Criminal Court, Minister of Foreign Affairs Anže Logar underlined the importance of respecting the rule of law and the efforts to fight against impunity. With coordinated action, the international community can strengthen the international criminal justice system and the independent and unbiased functioning of the Court. 

At the virtual Conference on Article XIV of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), the Minister said that Slovenia supports initiatives of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO) encouraging young people to get involved in science and technology to ensure international peace and security.

On the margins of the UN General Assembly Session, Minister Logar held bilateral talks with the Foreign Ministers of Algeria and Jordan. The talks with Algeria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and National Community Abroad Ramtane Lamamra centred around economic cooperation between the two countries. Among African countries, Algeria is Slovenia’s second most important trade partner. Minster Logar commended the constructive role Algeria has played in the region, especially regarding the situation in Libya.

Minister Logar and Jordan’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Ayman Safadi advocated further strengthening of bilateral cooperation between the two countries, particularly in the economy. They went on to exchange views on the status of the Middle East peace process, the role of Jordan in the region, and the EU-Jordan relations.
