According a press release from the prime minister's office, Pahor said he was happy with the possibility of cooperation and for ensuring that together "certain steps forward are taken in solving open issues faced by the Roma community".
The head of the Council of the Roma Community, Jozek Horvat, said that certain issues related to the Roma had been tackled successfully after Slovenia became independent. However, more needs to be done "especially in the area of legislation concerning the Roma population".
The representatives of Roma communities in Slovenia highlighted the need to legalise Roma settlements and to address the problem of education and employment, Pahor's office said in its statement.
Representatives of the Roma community have also been received by President Danilo Tuerk ahead of the International Roma Day. The president stressed in Friday's meeting the importance of promoting education for the community.
