Međunarodna znanstvena konferencija 'Proširenje NATO-a na Zapadni Balkan' održala se 22. studenog 2017. u Mimari u Zagrebu, te je službeno otvorena pozdravnim govorima predsjednika Atlantskog vijeća Hrvatske prof. dr. sc. Radovana Vukadinovića, Ministrice vanjskih i europskih poslova Hrvatske Marije Pejčinović Burić te Ministra vanjskih poslova Crne Gore Srđana Darmanovića. Profesor Vukadinović je istaknuo važnost Atlantskog vijeća Hrvatske i utjecaju na širenje NATO-a na Zapadni Balkan, posebno misleći na Crnu Goru. Ispred zemlje domaćina ove međunarodne znanstvene konferencije, okupljene je pozdravila Ministrica Pejčinović Burić koja je istaknula kako je sigurnosna situacija Hrvatske od ulaska u NATO poboljšana, a tu je istaknula veliku važnost Članka 5 Sjevernoatlantskog ugovora. 'NATO je temeljni oslonac obrane, te se može reći kako sigurnost donosi i više investicija.', istaknula je Pejčinović Burić, dodavši kako je Hrvatskoj u interesu širenje NATO-a na ovaj dio Jugoistočne Europe. Crnogorski ministar Darmanović nadovezao se toj tvrdnji ističući da nedavni ulazak Crne Gore u NATO savez znači i to da su NATO vrata otvorena i ostalim zemljama u regiji, što je posebno ohrabrujuće jer se time pokazuje da transatlantska zajednica nije zaboravila ovaj dio Europe.
