The Foreign Ministry expressed Slovenia’s full support for the decision of Sweden and Finland to join NATO, labelling the two countries as the closest partners of the alliance.
“NATO’s door must remain open to European countries that want to join and meet the criteria for membership,” it said. The two countries’ move was also hailed by President Borut Pahor and Tanja Fajon, the leader of the Social Democrats (SD), who is tipped to become Slovenia’s next foreign minister. Luka Mesec, the leader of the Left, announced his party would vote against Finland’s and Sweden’s membership when a vote came up on the new government, but would abstain in the vote on the same matter in parliament.
