Slovenian Prime Minister Marjan Sarec responded to the conservative criticism of the opposition to the UN Migration Pact pointing to its non-binding nature.
"The Marrakech Declaration is not a binding document for us and should be treated as such," said Sarec on Monday in Ljubljana. "I think there's too much dust in this matter." After the decision to leave the Turkish Austrian federal government, the Conservative Democratic Party (SDS) of former Prime Minister Janez Jansa injected the pact and even made a referendum on this in the game. "
The states that declared their retirement did so mainly for domestic political reasons, "said Sarec with reference to Austria, but the liberal politician clearly separated from the document and made it clear that he would not attend the summit of Marrakech in December. Moreover, at the moment the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is responsible for an analysis of the document.
The reason for this is that the recent statement by Slovenia on the UN document dates from May, when the previous government was still in office. Responsible for the current analysis is the then head of government and current Minister of Foreign Affairs, Miro Cerar. As reported by the informant circles for the RTV Slovenija television station, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes a referral from coalition leaders with the question.
In the end, since spring, not only the constellation of the government has changed, but also the international environment. Sarec runs a minority government of five liberal and leftist parties. The unthinkable politician had frustrated the formation of the government, the winner of the parliamentary elections in June, former Prime Minister Jansa.
The foreign minister, Cerar, will be meeting this Wednesday in Vienna with his Austrian counterpart Karin Kneissl (FPÖ). According to media reports, government leaders overthrow the exit decision.
