Necessary corrections in relations with Croatia

Ljubljana, 30 October - The doors to the today's session of the Foreign Relations Committee of the Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia were only partly open to mass media. The president of the Committee Matjaž Šinkovec proposes that the second half of the session be held behind closed doors because a comprehensive information on relations with Croatia was to be presented. Mr. Šinkovec said, "Certain basic corrections will have to be made in foreign relations with Croatia". It is evident that important differences arose in the bilateral relations with this republic, which is why they have to be redefined. "We do not wish that Slovenia and Croatia be considered Siamese twins" said minister Rupel. Present at today's session were also the President of the Republic of Slovenia Milan Kučan, foreign minister Dimitrij Rupel, defence minister Janez Janša, and the director of the Public Accounting Service Igor Omerza. Among other matters, the session was intended to provide comprehensive information about the mentioned issues, although the platform for a new policy will not be adopted today.
