Slovenia and NATO

Full membership of NATO was a strategic goal that Slovenia set for itself immediately upon independence. Slovenia has endeavoured to become a member of NATO because of the fundamental values it shares with the Alliance, its strategic security interests and its vital national interests.

All of Slovenia's governments to date and the majority of political parties have worked toward membership, and this decision has been confirmed several times in the National Assembly as well. Not least of all, the citizens of Slovenia have also confirmed this Euro-Atlantic commitment in a referendum.

NATO membership will make it possible for Slovenia to effectively face the security challenges that threaten all members of the international community today. For Slovenia, membership also represents a responsibility to preserve and strengthen the Alliance's capacity to effectively respond to modern security challenges.
