Slovenia belongs among the youngest actors of the contemporary international system. After the Declaration of Independence in June 1991 the country was attacked by the Yugoslav People's Army controlled by the Serbian nationalist leadership with Slobodan Milosevic in the top. The "ten-day war" became one of the grounding myths of Slovenian sovereignty and strongly influenced the further development of Slovenian politics including the foreign policy. Despite leaving Yugoslavia, the country was also in the next years thought in the bulk of "post-Yugoslav" countries and located into the problematic region of Western Balkans in the mental maps of many Western politicians.
