The current EU presidency holder Slovenia will host the annual summit between the European Union and the United State in June, a spokesman said in Slovenian capital Ljubljana on Monday.
Anze Logar told the Slovenian Press Agency that the summit would be held in the first half of June, while the exact date would be announced a month in advance.
Slovenian media have suggested that the summit will be held on June 9 and 10 at the Slovenian resort of Brdo pri Kranju near Ljubljana.
U.S. President George Bush is to lead the U.S. delegation, while the EU is to be represented by Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa as the current president of the European Council and President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso.
The annual EU-U.S. summits are held alternatively in the EU member countries and the United States. The latest such meeting took place in Washington in the spring of 2007.
During Slovenia's spell as the EU presiding country in the first half of 2008, the 27-country bloc will also hold summits respectively with Japan, Russia as well as Latin American and Caribbean countries.
The EU summit with Japan will be held in Tokyo on April 23, while its summit with Russia will be held in Russia's Khanty-Mansiysk. The EU summit with Latin American and Caribbean countries is to be held in Peru's Lima in mid-May.
