National Council President Alojz Kovšca pointed in an online symposium on religious freedom to the importance of the state’s role in promoting and protecting religious freedom, while Apostolic Nuncio Jean-Marie Speich recalled the role of Pope John Paul II in Slovenia’s independence.

Owing to the personal decision of Pope John Paul II, the Holy See was among the first to recognise Slovenia as an independent state, he said. Both welcomed this type of dialogue between church and state as they addressed the event as a prelude to the celebration of the 30th anniversary of Slovenia’s independence.
