|COMEUFOR is introduced to RCC Center’s staff.|
On 7th January 2011, COMEUFOR, Major General Bernhard Bair, visited the Turkish Liaison and Observation Team (LOT) house in Zavidovići. The LOT commander welcomed COMEUFOR and introduced the LOT personnel to him. The subsequent briefing provided an informative update on the current activities of the Liaison and Observation Team.
It was readily apparent that the Turkish soldiers are well integrated within the local community. Later the same day COMEUFOR also paid a visit to LOT Doboj which is manned by Polish troops. Throughout the day he was accompanied by Colonel Sahmurat Akgun, the Regional Coordination Centre Chief for the area.
Over the years the EUFOR contingents have developed warm and professional relations with their neighbours and the local authorities and the LOT Houses form a vital part of maintaining situational awareness across the country.
