Chair of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Borjana Krišto, spoke today with the Commander of EUFOR in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Major General Helmut Habermayer, about the cooperation between the institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina and EUFOR in the coming period.
Krišto informed Habermayer about the work priorities of the BiH Council of Ministers. She pointed out that the Euro-Atlantic integration of BiH has no alternative but also that this process requires a lot of compromise and political consensus of all three nations. Therefore, the focus of the work will be aimed at reaching an agreement on all the key issues of that process.
The interlocutors assessed today’s decision of the Council of Ministers of BiH on adopting the Draft Budget of the institutions of BiH and international obligations of BiH for 2023 as positive, and the adoption of appropriate decisions increasing the incomes of employees in the institutions of BiH, including soldiers, the Council of Ministers of BiH said.
Krišto expressed her satisfaction with the cooperation of local authorities at all levels and EUFOR and expressed the expectation that this trend will continue. She also emphasized the importance of EUFOR’s cooperation with the local population through various forms of support to local communities, which gives EUFOR’s mission visibility and recognition.
She thanked EUFOR for the continuous support they provide to the authorities in BiH in maintaining a safe and stable environment, as well as the support to the Armed Forces of BiH in adopting NATO standards.
