Ljubljana, 25 June - SLOVENIA/ANNIVERSARY/STATEHOOD
President of Slovenia Milan Kučan addressed the solemn academy in Ljubljana on the 4th anniversary of Slovene statehood Sunday evening, stressing that the birthday of the Slovene state is deeply rooted in the conscience of its citizens. "It marks the heroic period of our recent past when modern history of Slovenes was decided by acts of the only hero - the Slovene nation. With its will, courage and pride it was the unbreakable defence line of the homeland," said Kučan. He dedicated a minute of silence to the "honourable memory of those who sacrificed their lives in the war of 1991 to make the dream of several generations of Slovenes come true".
