Mašović asks General Graziano for assistance in demining process in BiH

SARAJEVO, July 13 (FENA) – Chief of the Joint Staff of the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Colonel General Senad Mašović, talked today with Chairman of the European Union Military Committee (CEUMC) General Claudio Graziano.

During the telephone conversation, the two generals exchanged information on the situation regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, current and future activities of the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also the situation in the Central African Republic (CAR), where members of the BiH Armed Forces participate in the EU Training Mission.

General Mašović informed General Graziano about the existing problems and asked for the support of the EU Military Committee, especially when it comes to demining process in BiH.

Due to non-adoption of the budget, the Armed Forces of BiH are facing the lack of certain equipment that is essential for continuation of the process of humanitarian demining in the entire territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

General Graziano once again emphasized the commitment of the EU Military Committee and EU leaders to the countries of the Western Balkans, and promised to do his utmost to support the solution of these problems.

General Mašović invited General Graziano to visit the BiH Armed Forces, expressing hope that it would be realized in September when the ways of cooperation and support to the defense system of Bosnia and Herzegovina would be discussed in more detail, the PR Office of the BiH Ministry of Defense said.
