EUFOR Engineers mentor Armed Forces BiH road building project

From 04 to 29 June 2018 a road construction project in the Military Training Area Manjača took place. The Engineering Battalion from Armed Forces BiH together with an EUFOR mentoring team from Slovenia and Austria completed this field project for temporary military roads.

More than 750 m of the road were built and about 7 500 m2 ground prepared. With this training support the engineers from AFBiH will be able to finish the final work by themselves. As a follow-on project it is planned to construct an urban training area at this location.

United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 1575, adopted unanimously on 22 November 2004, welcomed the EU’s intention to launch an EU military operation in BiH. It authorized the Member States acting through or in cooperation with the EU to establish a multinational stabilization force (EUFOR) as a legal successor to SFOR under unified command and control, which will fulfil its missions in relation to the implementation of Annex 1-A and Annex 2 of the Dayton/Paris Agreement. EUFOR has the main peace stabilization role under the military aspects of the Peace Agreement.
