Political Affairs

Excellent relations between the Republic of Slovenia and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland are reflected in intensive and diversified co-operation at all  levels (bilateral and multilateral forum). The co-operation between the two countries was further intensified in the context of the Slovenian preparations for her Presidency of the EU Council, as well as during the Presidency itself, in the first half of 2008.

The official visit of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II and HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth and Baron Greenwich in 2008, hosted by Dr Danilo T├╝rk, President of the Republic of Slovenia, is another reflection of the above mentioned excellent relations. In 2009, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia Mr Borut Pahor visited the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and met the Prime Minister, First Lord of the Treasury and Minister for the Civil Service Mr Gordon Brown.

Dr Danilo T├╝rk, President of the Republic of Slovenia, visited the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland on 25 and 26 March 2010. The President met Her Majesty the Queen, his programme also included two public events ÔÇô the hand over of a special collection ÔÇťIconotheca ValvasorianaÔÇŁ of Janez Vajkard Valvasor (1641-1693, elected as fellow of the Royal Society in 1687) to the Royal Society and an event at the Chatham House, a round table discussion on the subject of the future of the UN.
