Dr. Brglez underlined the fact that the Slovenian foreign policy is exercised for the benefit of Slovenia’s citizens by taking into account Slovenia’s activities and obligations in the international arena and that diplomacy remains the main means for implementing the Slovenian foreign policy. In that regard the Slovenian diplomacy represents Slovenia’s national and common interests. Slovenian foreign policy has an important role in the support and active cooperation in the shaping of the binding international standards of human rights protection. Another key task of Slovenia’s foreign policy refers to the creation of economic opportunities.
