Major General Martin Dorfer, Commander EUFOR, paid a courtesy call to the President of the Federation of BiH Marinko Čavara on 23 May. During that visit, they discussed the security situation in BiH and COMEUFOR expressed EUFOR’s ongoing support to the safe and secure environment in the country. COMEUFOR did not, as some news outlets have incorrectly stated, give any political statement or express support for any political party or political position, as this would be beyond his remit as Commander European Union Force, Operation ALTHEA.

EUFOR holds an Executive Mandate under UN Security Council Resolution 2384 to support the maintenance of a Safe and Secure Environment in BiH. As part of its non-executive mandate, it supports the AFBiH in achieving international military standards.
