This week has been busy for the Multinational Battalion of EUFOR. In partnership with the EU Delegation in BiH and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), they have been facilitating the logistical arrangements to deliver medical supplies.
On November 21, The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission, Josep Borrell, visited EUFOR headquarters at Camp Butmir, Sarajevo, as part of his visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina on the 25th Anniversary of the agreement of the Dayton Accords.
On 5 November, the 15-member UN Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 2594 (2020) under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, welcoming the continued presence of EUFOR ALTHEA and the EU’s readiness at this stage to continue an executive military role to support Bosnia and Herzegovina authorities to maintain the safe and secure environment.
Commander EUFOR, Major General Trischak, and the Head of EU Delegation to BiH and Special Representative in BiH, Ambassador Johann Sattler were in Banja Luka yesterday. The visit was to hand over a significant amount of protective equipment donated by the EU to the Republika Srpska Health Institute in Banja Luka.
A specialist EUFOR countermines team visited the OLOVO municipality recently, monitoring a demining site of the BiH Armed Forces Demining Battalion. As part of the ‘Land Release Project’, the Demining Battalion has already cleared 88 mines at the location, and has now switched its focus to the issue of cluster munitions.
EUFOR’s mine risk education teams had a busy week in and around Sarajevo. The education programme delivered by Liaison Observation Team (LOT) Novo Sarajevo has been restricted by the COVID pandemic, but EUFOR understands the importance of these classes.
