The UK takes very seriously talk of secession and other threats to undo the progress of the last twenty-six years in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), and remains committed to helping BiH maintain lasting peace and stability. The EU stabilisation force, EUFOR, plays a vital role in safeguarding peace and security. 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 building the capacity of the BiH Armed Forces. At the NATO Foreign Ministers' Meeting in Riga, the Foreign Secretary called on Allies to enhance NATO's engagement on BiH. The UK will continue to support BiH in implementing domestic reforms and tackling challenges to peace and security.
