Foreign Ministry Calls On Italy to Withdraw Disputed 1000 Lira Coin

Ljubljana, 17 November - SLOVENIA/ITALY/COIN
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent Monday a note to Italy's embassy in Slovenia to point to its attention the fact that the Slovene territory was not drawn correctly in a map of Europe on Italy's new 1000 Lira coin. The ministry therefore expects relevant Italy's bodies to provide an explanation and withdraw the disputed coin from circulation, the Foreign Ministry reported.
