“Our relations are now experiencing a period of real growth. Of course, I mean visits at the highest level. This is the visit of Vladimir Putin to Slovenia in 2016, and the forthcoming visit of the President of Slovenia to Russia, to which we are preparing. Two of these visits in a short time create the necessary political platform for strengthening our bilateral relations, “N. Nikiforov said.
