25th anniversary of the Norwegian recognition of Slovenia

The Norwegian Embassy congratulates Slovenia on the 25th anniversary of the European Community’s recognition of the independent Slovenia. On January 15 1992 the majority of the present-day members of the European Union and other European countries, including Norway, recognised Slovenia’s independence.

Olav Berstad, Norwegian Ambassador to Hungary and Slovenia, recently attended a conference in Ljubljana called “Slovenia and the European Union 25 years after recognition”, organised by the Slovenian MFA in cooperation with the European Commission Representation in Slovenia and the Slovenian Press Agency. The conference was opened by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Karl Erjavec and the highly esteemed panel featured among others Slovenia’s first President, first Prime Minister and first Minister of Foreign Affairs.  

The conference was followed by the opening of a documentary exhibition on the 25th anniversary of the international recognition of Slovenia.
