The event was held at the Hotel Sarajevo.

The workshop was opened by an address from Commander EUFOR, Major General Anton Waldner: “I would like to underline the importance of this process in our endeavor to guarantee a safe and secure environment in BiH.” He went on to say: “Since 2013, we have achieved a lot by working and cooperating together. Our work in reducing the stockpile of surplus ammunition and introducing a Life Cycle Management programme has been successful over the years.”

The aim of the workshop was to provide a platform for the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina to progress with the planning and delivery of the comprehensive technical inventory in combination with marking and registration of the military weapon stockpile.

EUFOR continues to assist the Bosnia and Herzegovina MoD and the Armed Forces to carry out a comprehensive inventory of the military weapon stockpile and implement effective marking, recording and record-keeping practices which will in turn strengthen the security of military stockpiles within the country.

EUFOR Operation ALTHEA, currently made up of soldiers from 14 EU member states and 5 partner nations, works closely with the MoD, conducting capacity building and training throughout the country to promote a climate where the peace process can continue to move forward. The objective being that AFBiH will operate autonomously without the requirement for international assistance. EUFOR is fully committed to support BiH “on its path to a European future” and remains a vital enabling actor in the development and maintenance of a safe and secure environment.
