During a press conference with his Slovenian counterpart, Tania Fajon, Safadi emphasized that every dollar taken from UNRWA represents a piece of bread denied to a starving child, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.

Safadi commended Slovenia’s stance on the Israeli war on Gaza, “It is a position that stands for justice, international law, and the rights of the Palestinian people to live freely and with dignity. It recognizes their right to self-determination and calls for comprehensive peace that allows Palestinians and Israelis to live side by side in safety.”

“Your voice has been of great importance both within the EU and in the Security Council, where Slovenia plays a crucial role,” he added.

Meanwhile, Slovenian Foreign Minister Tania Fajon stated, “We have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Slovenia and Jordan regarding political cooperation between our foreign ministries.” She emphasized that Jordan is an important partner for Slovenia in the Middle East; the two have had diplomatic relations for 31 years.

Regarding the situation in the Middle East, Fajon emphasized that her country has repeatedly called for an immediate ceasefire and allowing the delivery of humanitarian aid. She stressed that Slovenia will continue to support UNRWA.

Fajon also made it clear that Slovenia has explicitly requested that Israel refrain from military operations in Rafah.

She underscored the importance of a two-state solution and the existing cooperation with Jordan in this context.

It is worth noting that the President of the Republic of Slovenia posted on her personal X platform page, stating, “In a conversation with the Jordanian Foreign Minister, I once again called for an immediate cessation of hostilities in Gaza. We also discussed the peace plan to end the war, in which Jordan is involved.”
