On Thursday, EUFOR Chief of Staff (EUFOR COS), Brigadier General Horvath, paid a visit to a demining site and an ammunition storage site both of which are under the control of the Armed Forces of BiH.
The demining site was located at Hodbina close to Mostar and COS was given an update on the current work being carried out at the site, the challenges that are facing the demining teams and was then given a tour of the site while wearing protective equipment. All demining work is vital and this area in particular is very important for future road improvement works.
“I could see that the personnel of the Demining Battalion are very professional, very devoted and even if we are under very hot weather they are still going on with the mission”, said General Horvath.
Later the same day COS visited ammunition storage site Gabela and was given a brief on current holdings and made aware of the difficulties faced in the world of ammunition storage. General Horvath was very interested with the information he received, saying:
“I express my gratitude to the commanders and the soldiers of the Armed Forces BiH for their professionalism in this area”
