Major General Robert Brieger, the Commander of EUFOR (COM EUFOR), welcomed His Excellency, Mr Karlos Gadis, Ambassador of the Hellenic Republic to Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), to Camp Butmir on the 20th of February 2012.
The Ambassador undertook an Office Call with COM EUFOR, where the general situation in BiH and the wider Balkan region was discussed. COM EUFOR also briefed Ambassador Gadis on the current operational activities of EUFOR in BiH, including the ongoing Capacity Building and Training initiatives which EUFOR are conducting with the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Major General Brieger praised the dedication and professionalism of the Greek troops serving with EUFOR, and the significant contribution which they are making to the mission in BiH.  The Greek contingent provides Key Headquarters Staff as well as two Liaison and Observation Teams (LOT) in Ugljevic and Zvornik, which constitute a vital interface between EUFOR and the public.   
The Office Call concluded with COM EUFOR thanking Ambassador Gadis for Greece’s contribution to Operation Althea and for his continued support.
