Another victory?

Today and this weekend, Slovenia will be partly at a traffic standstill. The end of the ski jumping season in Planica, euphoria over the achievements of ski jumper Peter Prevc and the first warm and sunny spring weekend are a winning combination for the organisers of the ski jumping competition in Planica, which will attract tens of thousands of Slovenians, hoping for another victory.

Slovenians hope for the best possible solution in the arbitration proceedings between Slovenia and Croatia. Yesterday, the Slovenian team under foreign minister Karl Erjavec presented their arguments before the court, explaining why the proceedings should continue in accordance with international law and the arbitration agreement, which Croatia seeks to unilaterally terminate.

Perhaps the EU will be able to avoid a standstill this time. While talks between the EU and Turkey are still ongoing, yesterday’s negotiations between leaders of member states indicate at least a minimum consensus on an agreement with Turkey, which has been heavily criticised in the last few days. It remains to be seen how today’s extraordinary summit will proceed. It is important for the agreement to be implemented as soon as possible to end the agony of ten thousand refugees waiting in Greece.
