In her statement she stressed that the Republic of Slovenia is of the opinion that the rules regarding the nationality of natural persons in the case of the succession of states should be in the form of a non-binding document. She added that at present, it is important to formulate a soft law document, containing clear and authoritative guidelines, as a useful tool in dealing with this issue in practice.
