Earlier this month, the UN Security Council authorised the renewal of the mandate of the stabilisation force (EUFOR) in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) for a further 12 months. Although the UK no longer participates in EUFOR following our withdrawal from the European Union, we liaise closely with Commander EUFOR and his team. We also support the NATO HQ in Sarajevo including though the secondment of UK staff officers, who are playing an important role including in supporting capacity building of the Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) Armed Forces.
