Prime Minister Sanader congratulates Pahor on election victory
ZAGREB, Oct 1 (Hina) - Croatian Prime Minister Ivo Sanader on Wednesday spoke on the phone with the president of the Slovene Social Democrats, Borut Pahor, and congratulated him on his victory at the recent parliamentary elections, the Croatian government said in a statement.
Pahor thanked Sander for his congratulations. Both officials confirmed that good neighbourly relations were in the interest of Croatia and Slovenia.
