Summary/Abstract: In January 2013 Slovakia is commemorating the twentieth anniversary of the Slovak Republic. This seems to be a good opportunity to look back, recall the road we have walked for the past two decades and assess our achievements so far. Where were we twenty years ago? What were our strategic foreign policy goals? And what were our biggest challenges? How far have we come since then? To ask these and similar questions is not an end in itself. It is important for another reason. The answers could help us address our most important foreign policy issue, concerning our way forward.
