PM Janez Janša announced late on Wednesday he had sent congratulations to the newly sworn-in US President Joseph Biden.

“For those curious: Prime Minister Janez Janša congratulated today the new US President Joe Biden on taking the oath,” wrote Janša, noting he did it the same way as in 2005 when as prime minister he congratulated the then US President George W. Bush. “Slovenia and the US were NATO allies then and are today,” added Janša, who was one of the few world leaders who had not congratulated Biden on his election victory before the inauguration.
