Kučan expressed the belief that it was very important that the talks with the Secretary of State Albright proved that Slovenia was on the right track and that if it continued with its endeavors Slovenia would remain the strongest candidate for joining NATO and support further solidification and co-operation in Europe. "My optimism and the assessment that the enlargement was a historic event are based on the belief that the expansion of NATO is an open process, that there will be other rounds, and that it is in the interest of Slovenia to do everything in its power to be accepted to NATO in the second trench" said Kučan.
