Pahor: 'our country will be an active part of the new EU'

(ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, 09 GEN - The climate is changing in Slovenia and the conviction that new political and social reforms are necessary to drag the country out of economic crisis is holding sway. "This is the type of bold message that we want to send", Slovenia's newly elected President Borut Pahor said after a meeting in Brussels Tuesday with European Parliament chief, Martin Schulz.

It was rumoured that Slovenia was on the verge of requesting an EU bail-out. But Pahor reassured Brussels of his country's willingness to crawl out of recession, and in the longer term to play its role in the future structure of the EU and of the Eurozone.

"I would like Slovenia to be part of the family of the most developed countries when decisions come", Pahor said. "I'll support all the necessary reforms so that Slovenia makes it out of the crisis and becomes an active part of the new EU".
