‘This is not just a bilateral issue, but a problem that affects the whole  EU,’ said European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker with regards to the arbitration decision. Just before the meeting with Slovenian President Borut Pahor, he (Juncker) explained that he sees the European Commission playing the role of a mediator between the two sides.

The main objective of Pahor’s visit was to call for a more active role of the European Commission in achieving the execution of the verdict, but Juncker was more skeptical about more concrete information on methods and timeframe. He said in particular that they would try to put together the sides together.” (translated from Delo)
