Military Defence Attaches (DAs) from 14 nations were hosted by COMEUFOR, Major General Martin Dorfer, on Friday 14th December in Camp Butmir, Sarajevo.
EUFOR staff briefed the DAs on topics which included: regional updates following the October elections, Exercise Quick Response in September 2018, demining, and the ongoing issues of weapon/ammunition identification and disposal.
In his welcoming address, COMEUFOR said: ”This is an important opportunity for EUFOR to provide updates on issues of significance to you, but primarily of significance to the safe and secure environment in Bosnia and Herzegovina.”
After the briefings, Colonel Žarko HENIGMAN of the Slovenian Army, Dean of the Diplomatic Military Corps in Bosnia and Herzegovina, said: “Gatherings such as this underline the strong spirit of co-operation that exists between EUFOR and the international community in Bosnia and Herzegovina.”
DAs work in diplomatic embassies, advising ambassadors on affairs which are directly, and indirectly, linked to military issues.
