The Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina (AFBiH) is ready to make all the resources available to help civilians protect themselves against the coronavirus pandemic, the Bosnian Ministry of Defense stated on Wednesday.
“The current situation in the fight against the spread of coronavirus primarily requires the engagement of the health system in BiH, while the engagement of the Armed Forces BiH will be defined by special decisions of the Bosnian Presidency, at the request of the competent institutions. So far, the Bosnian Presidency has not made a decision on the use of the Armed Forces of BiH resources,” the statement reads.
The Ministry of Defense of BiH points out that the AF BiH will put at disposal all of its capacities.
“The engagement of the Bosnian Armed Forces would entail the setting up and maintenance of tent checkpoints at border crossings and other planned locations. We are currently preparing the personnel, material and technical means for setting up the tents at specific locations, which needs to be approved by the Bosnian Presidency as the Commander-in-Chief through a special request,” it is stated in a press release.
