In light of the deteriorating security situation internationally and as a precautionary measure, the OP ALTHEA commander has accepted a voluntary national contribution from France to conduct fast-jet training flights over BiH over the coming weeks.
The Charles de Gaulle Aircraft carrier is currently conducting operational training in the Mediterranean Sea and, from Monday 7th March, its Rafale aircraft will conduct overflights of the Western Balkans including BiH.
At this time when the security equilibrium in Europe is shaken, EU demonstrates its continuing commitment and resolve to support a safe and secure environment in BiH and the Western Balkans.
