This afternoon marked the commencement of a short visit by the Slovenian Chief of Defence, Major General Robert Glavaš, to Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Commander EUFOR was represented by Chief of Staff Brigadier General Ernő Baráth who received Major General Glavaš with the provision of an honour guard on his arrival at EUFOR Headquarters. During the course of his visit Major General Glavaš met with Slovenian personnel deployed with EUFOR in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The visit of Major General Glavaš follows the visit of Slovenian President Mr. Borut Pahor, and the Slovenian Minister of Defence Mr. Matej Tonin, earlier this month.
Slovenia has a proud history associated with EUFOR and continues to contribute military personnel, who are employed in various appointments within EUFOR Headquarters and Liaison Observation Team House Banja Luka which they recently assumed command of. The continued support of the Slovenian state and armed forces is of great benefit to EUFOR in our continued support to the local authorities in providing a safe and secure environment in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
