10 June, Strasbourg - Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland met with Borut Pahor, President of the Republic of Slovenia, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Slovenia’s membership to the Council of Europe. The president also visited the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) and addressed the concert honouring the anniversary of Slovenia's membership. He said in the address that the Council of Europe was most important after the fall of the Berlin Wall, as new countries were settling into the political "architecture of Europe".
Slovenia joined the European Centre for Modern Languages, an enlarged Partial Agreement of the Council of Europe, as one of the founding member states on 8 April 1994.
