Slovenian citizens returning from abroad are advised to follow the recommendations of the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ).
Slovenia and the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe
The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) is the world’s largest regional security organisation. It comprehensively addresses security issues and resolves them through cooperation within three dimensions: politico-military, economic and environmental, and human.
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.
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.
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.
