The UK fully supports Bosnia and Herzegovina's (BiH) sovereignty and territorial integrity. The European Union Force Bosnia and Herzegovina (EUFOR) remains vital. We are working hard to secure its mandate in the UN Security Council and prevent a security vacuum. We have led efforts at NATO to develop a new package of measures to support BiH, including support to the NATO Headquarters in Sarajevo to counter disinformation, and are delivering training and capacity building to the BiH Armed Forces. In April, we imposed UK sanctions on Member of the Presidency, Milorad Dodik, and Republika Srpska President, Zeljka Cvijanovic, for their attempts to undermine Bosnia and Herzegovina's integrity, legitimacy and functionality.
