Summary/Abstract: The enlargement of NATO with the inclusion of Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary decided during the NATO summit in Madrid of July 8-9, 1997, has been one of the most important events of security policy since the end of the so called Cold War. NATO faced the difficult task of acknowledging the legitimate security interests of the young democracies of Central and Eastern Europe and, at the same time, not arousing Russia's distrust, i.e. avoiding to create the impression that Central and Eastern Europe would once again – this time very much to Russia’s disadvantage – be divided. NATO has officially left the door open for further enlargement rounds.
