The announcement on Twitter comes after talks between the Slovenian and Hungarian foreign ministers, Anže Logar and Peter Szijjarto, who met at the Dolga Vas checkpoint.

The talks were dedicated to the current rules on the border, the coronavirus epidemic and the situation of ethnic minorities on both sides of the border.

Hungary closed the border with Slovenia in early March and erected checkpoints through which limited goods transport was allowed into the country.
