Slovenian President Pahor and Turkish President Erdogan on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Strategic Partnership Agreement between Slovenia and Turkey

Ljubljana, 20. 3. 2021 | press release

Today, President of the Republic of Slovenia Borut Pahor had a telephone conversation with President of the Republic of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The discussion was held in the light of the 10th anniversary of the Strategic Partnership Agreement between Slovenia and Turkey.

The two presidents assessed that the agreement fostered economic cooperation between the two countries and strengthened their political dialogue. Slovenia is keen to achieve more balanced trade between the two countries and, above all, renewed growth of their economic relations following a slight decline due to the Covid-19 epidemic last year.

The discussion also included the relations between the European Union and Turkey. President Pahor called for dialogue and a constructive approach to seeking solutions to the challenges in the Eastern Mediterranean.

The Strategic Partnership Agreement between the Republic of Slovenia and the Republic of Turkey was signed on 3 March 2011 in Ankara by Borut Pahor and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, then as Prime Ministers of their respective countries.
