The UK works closely with the USA, Germany, France, Italy and other NATO Allies and EU Member States to support the integrity of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) as a single, sovereign state, comprising two entities. In the UN Security Council in recent weeks, we helped to renew the stabilisation force's (EUFOR's) mandate for a further 12 months, and support the High Representative. We also support the NATO Headquarters in Sarajevo, including through the secondment of UK staff officers, whose work includes building the capacity of the BiH Armed Forces. The UK will continue to support BiH in implementing domestic reforms and tackling challenges to peace and security. Further discussions of how to support stability in BiH will take place at the upcoming NATO Foreign Ministers' meeting in Riga, which the Foreign Secretary will attend.
