The Commander of EUFOR, Major General Reinhard Trischak, held his first meeting with the new EU Special Representative and Head of EU Delegation, Ambassador Johann Sattler, on Monday 23 September in the EU Office in Sarajevo.
During an open and productive Office Call, General Trischak informed the EUSR on current activities of EUFOR and its upcoming annual Exercise “Quick Response 19” that shall demonstrate the EU’s resolve and EUFOR’s capability to rapidly reinforce its troops in BiH with reserve forces held at high-readiness in partner nations.
Both officials took the opportunity to discuss the current political and security situation in BiH and in the region. This was followed by an exchange of views on the best way to support the authorities and population of BiH as the country progresses on the path to European integration.
They also emphasised the strong links between the EU Office and EUFOR and that continued close cooperation between the two organisations is a priority.
