EUSR and COMEUFOR: close coordination between the main EU instruments

Commander EUFOR, Major General Trischak outlined the core tasks and main activities of EUFOR as well as persistent security challenges in the country before handing over to his subject matter experts. Areas of close cooperation between the EU Office in BiH and EUFOR are in particular the BiH Masterplan for the disposal of surplus ammunition and weapons, the support to mine action and situational awareness in general.

For the latter EUFOR provides an objective and unbiased assessment of the security situation contributing to a fact-based perception of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
