The security situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina is stable and, according to many criteria and aspects of security, it is at a level above the average of the countries of the Western Balkans. The elements of the BiH security system have the capabilities and prerequisites to preserve order, peace, stability, and the safety of citizens and institutions, BiH Minister of Security Selmo Cikotić told reporters in Sarajevo yesterday.
Cikotić also referred to the top results received by the Light Infantry Battalion Group of the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina after the end of the “Combined Effort 22” military exercise, and said that it is extremely important that the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina find solutions that are in the interest of the state of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as all its citizens.
The exercise was carried out in Manjača in the period from September 19 to 23, with the aim of checking the achieved level of combat readiness of the declared units of the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina and their ability to plan and carry out military operations, in accordance with NATO standards. The evaluation team consisted of representatives of NATO member countries, partner countries and members of the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Minister Cikotić pointed out that the unique Armed Forces of BiH were created in the interest of the state as a whole and all its citizens. He believes that a positive assessment will be an incentive for all members of the Armed Forces to continue moving along a safe path that is in everyone’s interest and in the interest of peace.
