Sweden Rejoins EUFOR

Sweden Rejoins EUFOR
The Swedish Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina, His Excellency Mr Bosse Hedberg, COM EUFOR Maj General Bernhard Bair and Major Thomas Gillman

On 12th August 2010 the Swedish Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina, His Excellency Mr Bosse Hedberg, attended a flag raising ceremony in CAMP BUTMIR, Sarajevo. The ceremony marked the formal return of a Swedish contingent to EUFOR whose previous contribution had concluded in April 2008. Sweden is participating in the newly formed Capacity Building and Training Division which aims to further develop the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

This brings the total number of troop contributing nations to 27, (22 EU nations and 5 non EU nations) with approximately 2000 soldiers in-theatre. The addition of the Swedish contribution emphasises the commitment of the European Union to Bosnia and Herzegovina.
