GORKI, December 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Slovenian Prime Minister Alenka Bratusek invited Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev to visit Slovenia to improve his regretful impressions that he had after the previous visit to the country. The Slovenian prime minister has made an invitation to Medvedev at a news conference after the negotiations in Moscow.
“The prime minister said at a personal meeting that he had such regretful impressions from Slovenia, because he attended a football match, at which Russia lost,” Bratusek said, recalling about Medvedev’s trip to the Slovenian city of Matibor in November 2009, when Slovenia had defeated the Russian national football squad in a qualifier for the FIFA World Cup in the Republic of South Africa in 2010. “So, I invited the prime minister and I am prepared to show Slovenia from the best side,” she said.
“Slovenia is a perfect country and we invite here all of you,” the Slovenian prime minister said to those present at the news conference.
The Russian prime minister also noted that Russia and Slovenia intend to participate jointly in the celebrations of several memorial dates, including the centennial anniversary of the day of beginning of the First World War and the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Second World War. “Memorial issues will take a worthy place in our relations,” he noted.
