Koper, Slovenia (PortSEurope) May 7, 2021 – Defence Minister Matej Tonin has attended a meeting of EU defence ministers which discussed military mobility in Europe and he sees a role for Slovenian transport infrastructure. This could include Slovenia’s Adriatic port of Koper and the proposed upgrade to its Koper-Divača rail link. Both facilities should to be able to transport military personnel and equipment, and such
a possibility needs to be included in any planning. The main topic of the ministers’ discussion was the current state of preparation of the Strategic Compass, with an emphasis on its first pillar – crisis management. This includes increasing the EU’s capacity to respond to crises, such as the European Peace Facility (EPF), force generation, strengthening of the EU battlegroup concept and situational awareness. During the meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, EU defence ministers discussed EU-NATO cooperation in the areas of common interest, such as the Mediterranean and the Western Balkans.
