Slovenia in the UN
The United Nations (UN) is a unique system for addressing global challenges to international peace and security, sustainable development, and human rights, with countries sharing common objectives and contributing to positive changes in the world.
Human rights in Slovenian foreign policy
Human rights are universal and indivisible. Everyone has the same rights, regardless of nationality, place of residence, gender, ethnicity, skin colour, religion, language or any other personal circumstance. Therefore, the Slovenian foreign policy regards political, civil, economic, social, and cultural rights to be equal.
The respect for international law guarantees a stable international environment and is therefore the obligation, value, and interest of Slovenia's foreign policy. Slovenia is committed to furthering the fundamental principle of the rule of law, which is also one of the guiding Slovenia's foreign policy principles at both the national and international levels.
Slovenia as Depositary for Multilateral Treaties
The designation of depositaries of multilateral treaties is a result of an increasing number of states participating in the procedures for the conclusion of such treaties as well as a large number and complexity of activities required before and after the entry into force of multilateral treaties.
With restrictive measures or sanctions, the international community wishes to stop, in a peaceful manner, countries or individuals from being a threat to international peace or security.
Slovenia strongly condemns all forms of terrorism and violent extremism regardless of their nature or religious, ethnic or other ideology. Terrorism undermines the basic values such as human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law, the respect of human rights and fundamental freedoms, leading to negative effects on the national economy, sustainable development, and national security. Nothing can justify terrorism – ever.
Slovenia is striving to implement and strengthen the internationally agreed restrictions on the development, production, stockpiling, proliferation, and use of small arms and light weapons, as well as conventional weapons and weapons of mass destruction.
