LJUBLJANA, April 30. /TASS/. Slovenian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Karl Erjavec will represent his country at the celebrations on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the victory in World War Two in Moscow, according to a release posted on the official website of Slovenia’s President Borut Pahor.
The decision, according to the website, was taken with account of the position of the European Union countries. Pahor will take part in VE-Day celebrations in Slovenia.
Earlier on Thursday, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said as of today about 30 world leaders and top officials of the United Nations and UNESCO had confirmed their participation in the VE-Day celebrations in Moscow on May 8-10.
He said that due to the busy schedule not all of them would be able to be present at the DE-Day Parade in Moscow’s Red Square on May 9. Among such leaders are Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Presidents Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus and Milos Zeman of the Czech Republic.
