New York, 18 October 2011 – Ms. Simona Leskovar, Deputy Permanent Representative of Slovenia to the UN addressed the UN General Assembly Sixth Committee on the issue of the law of transboundary aquifers.

In her statement she stressed that the Republic of Slovenia welcomes and supports the efforts to build on the existing international legislation on water protection with topics addressing transboundary aquifers management in greater detail. Although major progress has been achieved in cooperation on joint surface water management in many parts of the region, there is a noted lack of transboundary cooperation and adequate solutions for managing joint groundwater aquifers.
