Slovenia receives more than EUR 0.5 million from the sale of SFRY embassy premises in Bonn
- Ministry of Foreign Affairs
The successor states to the former SFRY have jointly sold the premises of the former SFRY embassy in Bonn for more than EUR 3.7 million. As stipulated in Annex B to the Agreement on Succession Issues, Slovenia is eligible to receive 14 percent of the total sale proceeds, which amounts to EUR 0.5 million.
The building previously housing the SFRY Embassy in Bonn, located near the Rhine at Schlossallee 5, was built over 40 years ago and measures 5,400 m2 (the building proper plus the garden). The building is currently empty and in poor condition, as it has not been in use for the last 20 years. From 1989 to 1991, the Embassy of the SRFY was headed by a Slovenian diplomat, Ambassador Dr Boris Frlec.
Over the last year and a half, the successor states, in addition to the real estate in Bonn, have sold the residence of the former SFRY in New York and the building housing the former SFRY embassy and residence in Tokyo.
From the joint sale of the premises mentioned above, Slovenia has received slightly over EUR 3.6 million.
The successor states are also selling the premises of the former SFRY mission in New York and the building previously housing the SFRY embassy and residence in Bern.
Slovenia will continue to work towards a joint sale of both properties and to find a solution as to how to distribute the remaining diplomatic properties belonging to the former common
