President of Slovenia Visits Pope

Consider the challenges Europe must face

Pope Francis received today in audience Borut Pahor, president of the Republic of Slovenia, who subsequently met with Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, accompanied by Archbishop Paul Richard Gallagher, secretary for Relations with States.

According to a communique from the Vatican press office, the discussions focused on “the positive bilateral relations” and the “upcoming 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the Holy See and Slovenia” among other themes.

“The parties then focused on the good relations existing between the Catholic Church and the State and on the importance of dialogue with the aim of fruitful collaboration for the good of Slovenian society, and in particular for the younger generations.
Finally, attention turned to the international situation, with special reference to the regional context and the challenges that Europe is required to face.”
