"The official statement was made public soon after President Pahor had separate meetings with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US General Philip Mark Breedlove, NATO'S supreme commander in Europe."
Ljubljana, July 9 - Slovenia Tuesday said it disapproves the Russian policy towards Ukraine and seeks a peaceful solution of the prevailing crisis in that country.

Slovenia does not approve Russian policy towards Ukraine, Xinhua quoted the presidential office as saying in a statement, as high-ranking officials of Russia and the US are visiting the country.

Though Slovenia considers Russia a friend, President Borut Pahor expressed disapproval of its policy, which amounts to tense relations between Russia and the EU, the statement said.

A peaceful solution for Ukraine crisis must be found, and this peaceful solution would also be beneficial in the much-needed unanimous resolution of other crisis situations by the international community, it added.

The official statement was made public soon after President Pahor had separate meetings with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US General Philip Mark Breedlove, NATO'S supreme commander in Europe.

Slovenian Foreign Minister Karl Erjavec also had talks with Lavrov, focusing on, among others issues, the South Stream gas pipeline project, meant to transport Russian natural gas through the Black Sea to Bulgaria and through Serbia, Hungary and Slovenia further to Austria, and the Ukraine crisis.
