“Slovenian President Borut Pahor said on Monday that he had informally met with Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic on Sunday in Ljubljana, where they discussed bilateral relations and outstanding issues between the two countries.

‘We agreed it was necessary to continue the dialogue,’ Pahor said in an interview with Slovenian state broadcaster RTV Slovenia on Monday evening.

Pahor added it was their role as presidents to continue the dialogue and confirm friendly relations between Slovenia and Croatia on the presidential level.

That is a good message to send at a time when Slovenia is insisting on the implementation of the arbitration border ruling, determining the land and sea border between the two countries, which Croatia does not recognise, he said.” (N1)
