We are convinced that the opening of Istria for the citizens of Slovenia will be welcomed not only by Istria and Croatia, but also by our dear friends in Slovenia! ” A stable and favorable good epidemiological situation in Istria is not the result of luck, but of strategy and discipline! All our municipalities and cities are focused on making guests in the County of Istria feel safe and that their health, as well as the health of the people waiting for them at home, is not endangered in any way. Today, the County of Istria and all Istrian towns sent an appeal to the Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia, Mr. Janez Janša, with the aim of reconsidering the possibility of introducing measures for Croatia selectively, at the regional level, given the exceptionally good epidemiological picture in Istria and in the name of good neighborly relations. or county. The letter is transmitted below: After Croatia was included in the red list, we witnessed the dissatisfaction and reluctance of a large number of Slovenian citizens, our traditional guests, friends and neighbors who spend their summers in Istria for years or have their own holiday homes. The County of Istria and Slovenia have been cultivating extremely good friendly relations for years and Slovenian citizens are not only welcome in Istria, but also completely safe! We hereby welcome the efforts of the Government of the Republic of Croatia to reach an agreement with its neighbors and the countries of the European Union on the introduction of an epidemiological regime at the level of Croatian counties, and not at the level of the entire country. This appeal was made by the Istrian County and Istrian towns after the situation in Istria remained extremely good, despite the fact that the epidemiological picture in other Croatian counties has deteriorated sharply. Therefore, we hereby appeal to the Government of the Republic of Slovenia to, given the exceptionally good epidemiological picture in Istria and in the name of good neighborly relations, reconsider the possibility of introducing measures for Croatia selectively, at the level of regions or counties. “Dear Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia, So far, it is quite clear that the continuously good and extremely stable epidemiological picture in Istria County is not a coincidence but the result of exceptional efforts of the Civil Protection Headquarters of Istria and great discipline of all our citizens, guests and businesses that consistently adhere to measures.
