Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that he would be prepared to meet with US President Donald Trump in the Slovenian capital Ljubljana, in Moscow on Friday. He made the comments during a joint press conference with the Slovenian President Borut Pahor.

SOT, Vladimir Putin, President of Russia (Russian): "Slovenia is an important partner of Russia in Europe and we welcome the goodwill of the Republic to maintain political dialogue. We believe that we should continue cooperation between the two countries and in May it will be the 20 year anniversary of our diplomatic relations. The trade between our two countries has decreased in recent years but after 2016 we can say that the situation has stabilised and currently the situation is being worked upon. We have discussed a number of projects and cooperation of our two countries in the sphere of energy. Russia delivers 75 percent of the demand of Slovenia in energy and we will continue delivering natural gas to Slovenia up to 2025."

SOT, Vladimir Putin, President of Russia (Russian): "As for Slovenia and Ljubljana, of course this would be a great place to hold a dialogue like this, but this is not just up to us, this also depends upon a number of factors and if we do have these meetings, we have already had similar meetings in Ljubljana, I would like to thank Mr President for such an opportunity, I would like to thank him for the fact that Slovenia is ready to organise such a meeting and of course we are ready to accept this."

SOT, Borut Pahor, President of Slovenia (Slovenian): "Slovenia is a NATO and EU member, but we always do our best to continue to have an open dialogue, to respect each other and find ways to strengthen our mutual ties and contribute to facilitating our relations and implementing our agreements. We hope that relations between Russia and the EU will improve."
