<b>Slovenia - NATO Member</b><p>Slovenia's accession to NATO represents an important step towards the strengthening of Slovenia's position in the international community and is a result of its transformation from a security consumer into a security producer. The membership in NATO places Slovenia among the democratic Euro-Atlantic countries that share the same fundamental values and have joined the efforts to safeguard their own security as well as stability in the Euro-Atlantic area. Successfully adapted to the new security challenges, NATO remains one of the fundamental organizations of the Euro-Atlantic area with a proven ability to safeguard and strengthen the security and stability in this area – events in South-Eastern Europe are witness to that.Slovenia has proven to be well-qualified candidate for membership in NATO by unreservedly supporting NATO decisions, taking active part in NATO-led operations and successfully implementing reforms. Politically, Slovenia demonstrated its commitment to Alliance when Slovenian voters strongly endorsed NATO membership in a referendum. Slovenia's integration in the Atlantic Alliance will strengthen country's security position in the international community and its defence capabilities. This will allow it to respond more effectively to the new security threats of the modern world that defy borders. On the other hand, with the implementation of its defence reforms, Slovenia will also contribute to the overall strength of the Alliance.
