EUFOR is pleased to announce the deployment of a German military contingent which will bring the total number nations contributing soldiers to EUFOR to 20. This contingent will deploy on a phased basis commencing in mid-August.
The number of personnel to deploy will be up to a maximum of 50. These new EUFOR personnel will provide additional capacity in EUFOR HQ and for EUFOR’s network of Liaison and Observation Team (LOT) Houses which are located on an impartial basis all over Bosnia and Herzegovina. LOT Houses are EUFOR’s link to local communities and local authorities.
These EUFOR LOT personnel live within their local communities and allow EUFOR to maintain a positive and important relationship at a local and regional level. The LOT Houses also provide an opportunity for BiH citizens to maintain contact with EUFOR, enabling direct dialogue between EUFOR and BiH citizens.
This deployment is a further demonstration of the EU’s commitment to a stable, prosperous and European future for all the citizens of BiH
