Slovenian emigrants praised for contribution to independence

Prime Minister Janez Janša and the first prime minister of the independent Slovenia, Lojze Peterle, noted the vital role that the Slovenian diaspora played in the independence efforts, as they addressed the 27th annual get-together of Slovenians living abroad.

The gathering, held at St Stanislav’s Institution in the Šentvid borough, marked the 30th anniversary of Slovenia’s independence. Janša said it was the emigrants that fostered the belief in a democratic Slovenia when their native country was subject to purges and they helped greatly with the diplomatic efforts.
