President Pahor in Dubrovnik Promoting Brdo Process Summit

Slovenian President Borut Pahor will meet his Croatian counterpart Ivo Josipović on Wednesday on the sidelines of the opening of the 64th Dubrovnik Games in Croatia ahead of the Brdo Process Summit, scheduled for 25 July, in Slovenia.

At a working dinner hosted by Josipović, Pahor will also speak about the Brdo Process with President of Bosnia-Herzegovina Nebojša Radmanović.


Ahead of the summit at Brdo pri Kranju, Pahor will be visiting Macedonia on Wednesday next week to meet President Gjorge Ivanov.


Pahor and Josipović agreed in May in Zagreb to resume the Pahor-initiated Brdo Process for cooperation of the leaders from the region, which the presidents of Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia welcomed at Croatia's EU accession.



The leaders of all the countries of the region have confirmed their participation in the 25 July summit, of which French President Francois Hollande will be a special guest, with high-level EU representatives also expected in attendance.


According to Pahor's office, the summit is to contribute to a positive atmosphere for conciliation, cooperation and solving of political issues in the region. Moreover, this is to contribute to furthering EU enlargement in the region.


Hollande will not be in the country merely for the summit but is also expected to pay an official visit to Slovenia on 25 July, as the first French president to do so, and is to be received also by PM Alenka Bratušek.
