On Wednesday 18th July, COMEUFOR, Major General Martin Dorfer visited a demining site at Delilovac within the municipality of Travnik.
The site is run by the NGO Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) and COMEUFOR was welcomed to the site by their Regional Director for Southeast Europe, Mr Sven Jonas Zachrisson.
The General was updated on activities including de-mining and land release as well as NPA’s holistic approach to the community which includes mine risk education and regular information flow to the local people on progress made.
The terrain they are working in is very steep forestry in the mountains, on the southern slopes of Mount Vlasic, which makes their job even more hazardous.
COMEUFOR was impressed by the professionalism and efforts of the staff he met and said he would ensure continuing full cooperation from EUFOR in its support for the organisation.
