A NATO flag was raised in front of the Foreign Ministry building to mark the 17th anniversary of Slovenian’s membership in the alliance, in what the ministry said was a long overdue event.

The flag was raised by Foreign Minister Anže Logar, who was accompanied by Ambassador Matjaž Šinkovec, Slovenia’s first permanent representative at NATO. The ministry said in a press release on the occasion that, by raising the flag, Slovenia was expressing the “affiliation to the Euro-Atlantic space and the awareness that we are part of the strongest alliance”.
