5.1.2013 – On behalf of us all, I want to send a loud message to the brave and famous combatants of the Pohorje Battalion all the way to the place of their greater rest and peace that their sacrifice was not in vain, that we are and desire to remain the proud heirs of their fight for the good, the just and the free, and that by our actions we will never allow, as far as each of us is concerned, new victims to fall for these same aims and values. Never again will there be war.
22.12.2012 – Since the establishment of the state, we have never been so close or so far from fulfilling these ambitions. Tonight dreams are not only allowed: they are urgent. Much depends first of all on our will. And on our mutual trust. And on faith that we can manage it. And last but not least, as regards politics, on the responsibility towards the people who entrusted us with difficult decisions.
We do not bend under the weight of these burdens. We are not weaklings. Let us take a more demanding but more promising path. Let us bear the following in mind. Nothing was ever simply granted to our nation. The nation itself had to fight for everything. Not much has changed now. Let us walk together forward into the future.
For fortune favours the brave!
