He went on to thank the German Republic for their continuing support to Op Althea. Germany is strongly committed to the Mobile Training Team concept. They discussed the possible German contribution to open Force Elements related to Air Medical Evacuation and Air Crew and Maintenance training in EUFOR.
Major General Löwenstein was visiting Camp Butmir to undertake discussions with German personnel serving in EUFOR HQ.
A EUFOR helicopter based at Camp Butmir, Sarajevo, participated in a successful Search and Rescue operation south of Medugorje earlier today, 6 May. A female German tourist had been reported missing overnight to the local police. Due to the nature of the terrain and the large potential search area, the local police requested support from EUPM. The assistance of EUFOR helicopter support was then asked for by the EUPM.
