Ig, 7 January 2016 – The President of the National Council of the Republic of Slovenia, Mr. Mitja Bervar, with Councillor Alojz Kovšca and Councillor Samer Khalil, have visited ITF Headquarters and met Ambassador Damjan Bergant, ITF Director, and ITF staff. The National Council delegation has been informed on ITF work and the 2015–2020 Strategy.

According to Mr. Bervar, “the ITF is an important organization contributing towards realization of Slovenia’s efforts in the field of humanitarian response and development cooperation ensuring international peace and stability".

Ambassador Bergant emphasized, that “support of the Slovenian state institutions is much needed and of crucial importance, so to further enable ITF to continue and even upgrade the realization of foreign policy goals the Republic of Slovenia determined in the period of ITF establishment and which are relevant even today".

Within a fruitful and constructive dialogue the representatives of the National Council have pointed out various proposals considering ITF further development and its programmes. In addition, both sides have agreed to strive for cooperation in different areas so to make an important contribution towards strengthening recognition of this organization, which is of great importance for the international community in general and Slovenia in particular.

The meeting has been concluded with a visit of the Museum of Unexploded Ordnance, within the premises of the Administration for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief of the Republic of Slovenia.
