The government of Slovenia has rejected plans by opposition leader Janez Jansa to move the Slovenian embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Jansha also expressed his support for the Government of Benjamin Netanyahu in the attacks on Gaza.

The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs and the Embassy of Slovenia in Tel Aviv were not informed about the recent visit of the president of the Slovenian Democratic Party, Janez Jansa, to Israel, State Secretary Sanja Stiglic confirmed at the session of the Foreign Policy Commission of the National Assembly.

MP Lennart Žavbi is convinced that Janša is running a parallel foreign policy and that he is harming Slovenia with non-coordination, which is especially controversial now that it is a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council.

Stiglic was clear that the government has no intention of moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

"Slovenia intends to follow the internationally established position that the status of Jerusalem must not change and will not move its embassy there until a peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians and a two-state solution is reached," Stiglic said, adding that this is the position of all previous government officials and the Committee for Foreign Policy and the European Union, Slovenian "Delo" reports.
