“Foreign Minister Karl Erjavec met Russian Minister of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media Konstantin Noskov, who is in Slovenia on Saturday for the annual ceremony commemorating the Russian POWs who died building the Vršič mountain pass in WWI.

The Foreign Ministry said in a press release that the meeting focused above all on economic cooperation between the two countries.

Trade between Russia and Slovenia increased by 15% last year and the data for the first half of 2018 is very optimistic, the press release said.” (Slovenia Times)
