Summary/Abstract: The foreign policy of the Slovak Republic (SR) towards the Western Balkans in 2006 did not differ in its orientation from the previous year. Not even early parliamentary elections in June 2006 caused a drift in the direction of foreign policy towards the Western Balkans and the region, despite certain vagueness in the document Aims of foreign policy of the SR in 2006, remained one of the strategic priorities of foreign policy and Slovak development assistance. On the other hand, the year 2006 was a special period for foreign policy towards the region and Slovak diplomacy achieved a number of successes, the process of a declaration of independence by Montenegro,directed and controlled by Slovak diplomats, being the most significant of them.
