MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold negotiations with Slovenia’s President Borut Pahor on Friday.
The Slovenian leader will pay an official visit to Russia at the invitation of the Russian president, who visited Slovenia in summer last year.
The Kremlin press service expects that "all issues concerning the development of the Russian-Slovenian relations" will be discussed during the talks. "Special focus will be made on further enhancing bilateral cooperation in the trade and economic, cultural and humanitarian areas," the press service said.
The sides are also expected to "exchange views on the key regional and international issues."
A range of bilateral documents are due to be signed after the talks. The Slovenian side expects that economic agreements worth hundreds of millions of euros will be signed during the visit. The implementation of these deals may double the annual trade turnover between the two countries estimated at some 700 mln euros now.
Ahead of his trip to Moscow, Pahor said in an exclusive interview with TASS that Slovenia’s authorities would be glad to provide a platform for the first meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump. "The choice of place for a possible summit depends on the decisions that Washington and Moscow will make," the Slovenian leader noted. "However, if the two presidents decide to meet in Slovenia, we will be only too happy about that." In 2001, Slovenia hosted a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and the then US President George W. Bush, he said.
