Ljubljana, June 1, 2022

The United States congratulates Prime Minister Robert Golob and the new Slovenian government on their confirmation by Parliament.  As enduring Allies, we look forward to continuing to advance global security and prosperity through our combined efforts in NATO and international organizations.  We applaud Slovenia’s commitment to the rules-based international order, and commend Slovenia’s bid for a seat on the U.N. Security Council.

On the 30th anniversary of our diplomatic relations, we celebrate our shared democratic values and priorities, including our commitment to protecting human rights and the rule of law, addressing the challenges of climate change, and expanding the economic ties between our two countries by harnessing the new opportunities of the green economy.  We are excited to work with the new government to deepen our relationship in the spheres of education and culture.  We also seek to work with Slovenia to return peace to Ukraine and bolster the efforts of Ukraine and the countries of the Western Balkans as they pursue further Euro-Atlantic integration.  

We welcome the continuing friendship and cooperation between our two countries.
