Summary/Abstract: While in 2004 Slovakia achieved its integration aims in terms of European Union and NATO membership, the year 2005 brought about new challenging tasks for both political elites and the general public to be accomplished, i.e. taking action as a member country by implementing the policy effectively. The position of Slovakia was strengthened not only by its EU and NATO membership but also by a number of events such as the Bush-Putin summit held in February 2005 in Bratislava, an increased activity of Slovak diplomacy and NGOs in maintaining stability and developing democracy in other countries as well as Slovakia’s becoming an elected member of UN Security Council, which contributed to the process of gaining a better position internationally.
