Prime Minister Robert Golob meets with UNESCO Director-General, Audrey Azoulay
The focus of the discussion was the diverse and rich cooperation between Slovenia and UNESCO. Mr Golob and Ms Azoulay also called for close cooperation in the UN Security Council, particularly in the month when Slovenia will take over the presidency. They also touched upon the humanitarian disaster in Gaza, where UNESCO’s involvement is mainly through the UNRWA activities.
The Prime Minister thanked Director-General Azoulay for co-chairing today’s Global Forum on the Ethics of AI, which addressed the variety of advantages, risks and negative effects related to artificial intelligence and focused on security and regulative actions regarding its use. Participants looked for solutions on national, regional and global levels. Director-General Azoulay said that UNESCO supported Slovenia’s activities in this area.
Mr Golob and Ms Azoulay also discussed an agreement reached ten days ago between countries of the former Yugoslavia to jointly refurbish the pavilion and install a new permanent exhibition in block 17 at the Memorial and Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau. The Director-General expressed UNESCO’s support in overseeing and assisting with the realisation of the project.
Cooperation between Slovenia and UNESCO is a strong indication of their commitment to promoting shared values and peace-building, of mutual understanding and cooperation among nations.
