“President Borut Pahor told his counterparts from Croatia and Italy on Saturday that the reception he hosted in Brdo pri Kranju for presidents of Slovenia’s neighbourly countries was an excellent opportunity to strengthen ties. Pahor said in his address before lunch he hosted for the two presidents that the meeting was an ‘excellent excuse’ for an open and honest exchange of views on the most important issues concerning ‘our countries and our mutual relations.’ Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović and Sergio Mattarella upheld this view. ‘I’ve always been loyal and will remain loyal to the policy of good neighbourly relations. It is our primary interest to look for solutions to our problems together through dialogue in a peaceful and patient manner and then honour those agreements,’ Pahor said at the reception he hosted to mark the start of his second term as president. Political problems are caused by people and they can be solved by people in a peaceful way and to the benefit of all, he stressed. ‘Having good neighbourly relations is the best way to start our foreign and security policies,’ he added.” (Slovenia Times)
