Slovenia in
the United Nations

Slovenia became a member of the United Nations on 22 May 1992. This marked the end of the process of independence and Slovenia emerged as a sovereign, independent and internationally recognised country. Accession to the United Nations was a great diplomatic success and, to mark the occasion, 22 May was declared Slovenian Diplomacy Day.
