Minister Fajon discusses Slovenia's role at UN with students from the Faculty of Social Sciences
Minister Fajon presented to the students of the Faculty of Social Sciences the role of Slovenia in addressing current challenges and the multilateral aspect of Slovenia's foreign policy. In her presentation titled "Confidence in the Future: Slovenia in the United Nations Security Council," she spoke about Slovenia's candidature for a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council for the 2024–2025 term.
"The rapidly changing international community and the many challenges of the future require effective functioning of the UN. Trust is a prerequisite for an international community based on universal rules and values. Only by building a strong and effective multilateralism can we speak of real trust in the future. All this is also reflected in the slogan of Slovenia's candidature for a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council, 'Building Trust – Protecting the Future'," Ms Fajon stressed during the presentation.
"Slovenia is an ambitious country aiming to contribute actively to building bridges of trust. I also wish you, dear students, perhaps future diplomats, to be ambitious and trustworthy. Observe carefully and critically the world and society around you and acquire as much knowledge as you can during your studies," advised Minister Fajon.
During her visit to the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Minister also visited the East Asia Resource Library, a central repository for print and digital resources from East Asia. The Minister also met with Dr Samo Uhan, Vice-Dean for Development, Quality Assurance and International Cooperation at the Faculty of Social Sciences.
