The chief Slovak diplomat was part of a panel focussing on the success stories that Slovakia has achieved since the Velvet Revolution.

Miroslav Lajčák highlighted that Slovakia’s accession to the European Union and NATO were historic moments for our country. Today, they constitute fundamental pillars for our security and prosperity and serve as a value compass. In this regard, he recalled that the Slovak Republic has gone a very long way forward from the complicated times back in the nineties all the way to the very heart of the European Union. Over the past three years Slovakia has presided over all relevant organisations, which it is a member of. “I am personally convinced that today there is no better model for us than membership in the European Union,” stated Minister Lajčák. He also said that he’s been aware of the room for improvement that this prestigious club of European nations has had.
