U.S. Department of State
SECRETARY BLINKEN: Well, good afternoon, everyone. It’s a real pleasure to welcome Minister Logar – Anže, welcome to the State Department – have you in Washington. We have been working very closely already with our friends, particularly as you’ve been leading the European Union Council with tremendous effectiveness over the past months. And a lot to talk about, including the Security Council candidacy that Slovenia has assumed, as well as the situation with Russia and Ukraine, the Western Balkans, and many other things. But I’m delighted to have you here, delighted for the partnership between our countries and for the opportunity to spend some time talking about a number of challenging and important issues. Welcome.
