Gergely Gulyás, the head of the Prime Minister’s Office, on Friday discussed migration and the European Union’s draft budget with Slovene officials in Ljubljana. Gulyas held talks with Foreign Minister Miro Cerar, state secretary for EU affairs Dobran Božič and Rudi Medved, the public administration minister. Gulyás said Slovenia supports the protection of the EU’s external borders.
As regards the EU’s 2021-2027 budget, he said that although Slovenia is a member of the euro zone, there are a number of areas and goals that the two countries can discuss with one another. On the topic of minority protection, he praised Slovenia’s treatment of its Hungarian minority. Gulyás said Ljubljana was equally content with Hungary’s minority policy. He said there was significant untapped potential in the two countries’ economic ties, mainly in the area of infrastructure.
