Presentation of the “Slovenian EU Presidency Guide” in the European Parliament

Dragutin Mate, Minister of the Interior The Minister of the Interior, Mr Dragutin Mate, today on behalf of Slovenia, the current holder of the EU Council Presidency, addressed the attendees at a reception in the European Parliament. The reception was held on the occasion of the presentation of the Slovenian EU Presidency Guide, a special supplement on Slovenia to "The Parliament Magazine". In his address, Mr Mate emphasised the common European values that also underpin the priorities of the Slovenian Presidency, which began only a few days after the extension of the Schengen area. "Being part of this area is undoubtedly a great privilege for every country; for Slovenia as well as for the other Member States located at the outer borders of the European Union, it is also a great responsibility, but one which we are pleased to accept," added the Minister.

The reception was also attended by several other Slovenian Ministers who are currently in Brussels to present the Presidency priorities in their respective areas of responsibility before the relevant parliamentary committees.
