Summary/Abstract: The prior aim of Slovakia in the field of security policy in 2000 has remained: the aim to receive an invitation from the NATO to become a member at the next summit of the Alliance. However, the year 2000 was not a period of political discussion about the enlargement of the NATO, as the expectations showed. The member states of NATO concentrated their attention on the Membership Action Plan of (MAP) and preparation of candidate countries. Despite this, the first political exchange of opinions about the enlargement of the Alliance in this phase took place in Berlin at the plenary session of the North Atlantic Alliance in November. Furthermore, a concrete resolution, which called upon the member states of NATO to invite other countries to become a member, was brought.
