Major General Alexander Platzer takes command of EUFOR Operation Althea

It is a great honour for me to be appointed as the Commander of EUFOR Operation Althea and to take command of the longest military operation under the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy, to date the only EU land operation with an executive mandate.

 

Continued EUFOR presence in BiH

The UN Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 2594 recognising EUFOR’s peace stabilization role under the military aspects of the Dayton Peace Agreement.

 

COVID-19 Information

Restrictions on entry and exit to Camp Butmir remain in force at this time. Visitors and suppliers should continue to make arrangements with their point of contact before attempting to enter Camp Butmir.

 
  • Since 2004 EUFOR has been a vigilant but neutral observer in BiH. Positioning ourselves outside of the political dynamics and being present in the background, pursuing our mandate under the Dayton Peace agreement. The EUFOR mandate supports BiH in its progress, as a ‘security provider’ rather than a ‘security consumer’, putting the safe and secure environment of the citizens above political agendas.

COM EUFOR Major General Alexander Platzer visited the BiH Deputy Minister of Defence, Mr. Mirko Okolić on 20 Jan 2021.
