(CNN) - President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump will make a future visit to her native Slovenia.  Slovenian President Borut Pahor invited the Trumps and they accepted.

Pahor's spokesperson says the group met Thursday in Warsaw at the Three Seas Initiative meeting.

Melania Trump was born Melanija Knavs in Novo Mesto, Slovenia, and raised in Sevnica. She lived in the capital of Ljubljana as a student before moving to Rome, then Paris, and ultimately, New York.

Slovenia is a small central European country the size of New Jersey, bordering Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia, with about 30 miles of coastline on the Adriatic Sea.
