Hungary has sent a new contingent of troops to Bosnia and Herzegovina who will begin service in the EUFOR peacekeeping mission there at the end of the month.
Addressing the unit’s farewell ceremony in Székesfehérvár, in central Hungary, on Friday, Major-General László Garas of the Hungarian Armed Forces said that because of its complex ethnic and religious situation and special state structure, Bosnia and Herzegovina could still not be considered a stable country. The EUFOR mission, however, serves to strengthen security in the region, he added.
Hungary’s troops are capable of effectively fulfilling all of their obligations concerning the mission and contributing to the strengthening of Europe’s defence capabilities, he said.
