Commander EUFOR, Major General Dieter Heidecker said “Over the last two years, I appreciated and took benefit of being a member of the EU family. This institutional arrangement offered me the possibility to be part of policy debates that gave new directions to the EU strategy of BiH. The EU comprehensive approach in BiH is a must, not an option. The level of integration achieved by the military and the civilian component is what makes each component stronger and demonstrates beyond doubt the EU’s commitment to BiH”
