Warsaw-President Borut Pahor began a three-day official visit to the University of Warsaw on Thursday to discuss the future of Europe with students and call for a new convention on the future of Europe that will gradually lead to the United States of Europe.
Pahall said he considers the European idea to be the finest political concept ever considered and needs to be brave and proud to maintain and develop it.
He called for new treaties on the future of Europe several times, emphasizing that it would lead to a new European Constitution and ultimately to the United States of Europe. He believes that EU citizens should be given the option to elect the President of the European Commission.
Pahall told students that this concept would be a way to maintain different identities and strengthen cooperation without the need for a “crucible” as in the United States.
He also emphasized that Europe should remain open to the countries of Western Balkans and Eastern Europe.
Later, Pahall met with a Slovenian student, dedicated a wreath to the monument to an unknown corrupt soldier, and met speakers from both houses of the Polish Parliament.
His office pointed out that the relationship between Slovenia and Poland is excellent and that bilateral cooperation is developing in some areas and at some level.
Pahor and Polish President Andrzej Duda will meet on Friday to discuss many topics, including the war in Ukraine.
This visit is also an opportunity to commemorate the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Slovenia and Poland.
