Summary/Abstract: During the Suez Crisis Yugoslav Government has demonstrated its new political doctrine based on principles of political distancing from two blocks and creation of wide movement of unaligned and unengaged countries in concrete situation for the first time. Through actions toward solving big international conflict, what the Suez Crisis definitely was, Yugoslavia preventively acted towards protecting its own national security. In the same time, by sending one contingent as part of the UN peace forces, Yugoslavia provided a way to be present in the region. During the Suez Crisis Yugoslavia has also shown outlines of its Middle East policy which fully proved themselves during following decades and which were the cornerstones of Yugoslav foreign policy till the breakup of Yugoslavia in 1991.
