Slovenian President Borut Pahor on Thursday urged the government of Prime Minister Janez Jansa to set aside the necessary funds for the functioning of the national news agency STA as soon as possible.

Asked by the press to comment on STA employees’ warning that the existence of the STA news agency was at risk, Pahor said that “this is the time when we must direct all our efforts towards the exit strategy for the epidemic, recovery and when we must concentrate on our priorities during our chairmanship of the European Union.”

All other matters that do not concern these priorities should be settled as soon as possible and with as little discussion as possible. Here I also mean the financing of the STA public news agency that has a special mission, which is why it should be funded, Pahor said.
