Operational Commander (OPCOM) for Operation Althea, the EU mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Lieutenant General Brice Houdet, visited BiH in order to obtain a realistic overview about the security situation on the ground.
LOT Brčko and LOT Novo Sarajevo were heavily involved in the OPCOM’s meetings with various kinds of local representatives such as the Mayors of Sarajevo, Brčko, Tuzla, Bijeljina, Istočno Sarajevo, the assembly speaker of the Brčko District (BD), head of Imam in Brčko and Chief and Deputy Chief of BD police.
OP COM was also very interested in speaking with the members of the LOT house personnel as the LOT houses are very important and visible components of EUFOR.
All the visits proved the importance of talks and negotiations in order to avoid any kind of escalation in the district and reinforced the thoughts of all involved that the focus should always be to preserve peace and stability.
EUFOR LOT members in BiH greatly contribute to the Safe and Secure Environment.
