Bosnia and Herzegovina: Peacekeeping Operations

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 5 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the reasons are for the change in size of the EUFOR military force in Bosnia-Herzegovina from November 2007 to February 2008. (190722)

The size of the EU military force in Bosnia and Herzegovina (EUFOR ALTHEA) has reduced from 2,566 at the end of November 2007 to 2,232 at the end of February 2008. The reductions resulted from the progressive transfer of responsibilities from EUFOR ALTHEA to Bosnia and Herzegovina authorities and the attendant closure of former camps at Mostar used by French forces and Rajlovac used by German and Italian forces.
