PM Janez Janša stressed at a ceremony marking thirty years since the passage of the military service act that the process of the passage of the act had been difficult.
He also stressed that the Slovenian Armed Forces had played a key role in Slovenia’s independence. The act was passed on 18 April 1991 after an almost six-moth government and parliamentary procedure and despite enormous resistance, Jaša said at the ceremony in the National Council. The start of military training was “a big, extremely important and irreplaceable step towards independence,” he added.
