Delo: Admission and Suspension

Ljubljana, 9 July - The significance of yesterday's signing of the Paris Charter and, later, the Helsinki Concluding Document of the CSCE by Drnovšek for Slovenia can undoubtedly be compared to the full admission of Slovenia into the UN. The signing is important because it obliges Slovenia to take on a great many responsibilities, which prove its international legitimacy and maturity. This will be a special certificate, the final document of the Slovenian struggle for independence and recognition, writes Darijan Košir in 'The Theme of the Day' in the morning edition of Delo.
The event is additionally significant because Yugoslavia was, at the same time, albeit temporarily, excluded from the Helsinki process, which banned it from the international community. The author adds that the state of Yugoslavia, which ceased to exist more than a year ago, was among the first to sign the Paris Charter, but was also the state which most obviously violated it later.
