LJUBLJANA (Reuters) - Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar on Tuesday rejected the resignation of Foreign Minister Karl Erjavec, Cerar's office said.

Erjavec, who also heads the junior coalition party Desus, offered to resign last Thursday over a scandal involving a leaked tape that led to a breakdown in international border arbitration with neighboring Croatia.
