Van der Bellen apologises to Slovenian minority for injustices

Austrian and Slovenian presidents attended a ceremony marking the centenary of the Carinthian anniversary together for the very first time.

Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen apologised to Carinthian Slovenians for the injustices and delays in the implementation of their constitutional rights. Slovenian President Borut Pahor meanwhile deemed the ceremony the heart of a united Europe.

Representatives of the Slovenian minority lauded Van der Bellen’s apology as well as warned that not all issues regarding the implementation of the minority’s rights had been resolved so far and urged efforts to do that. Meanwhile, some 100 young Carinthian Slovenians staged a protest held under the slogan 10 October – No Cause for Celebration! In Support of Anti-fascist Consensus in Carinthia.
