February 6, 2024

fter last week's visit of the highest decision-making body of the North Atlantic Council of NATO to Bosnia and Herzegovina, the commander of the NATO Headquarters Sarajevo, Brigadier General Pamela L. McGaha, reported on Tuesday, in Brussels, to the highest military leaders from the countries of NATO and the European Union.

Speaking together with other senior leaders from the European Union and international NATO military personnel, Brigadier General McGaha thanked the member states of the European Union and NATO for the recent visits and the contributions that the countries continue to make to the Defense Capacity Building Project in BiH.

As part of this NATO initiative, Bosnia has identified areas, including cyber defence, counter-terrorism and crisis response, in which it would like to benefit from international experts.

During the meeting, Brigadier General McGaha praised the highly trained members of the BiH Armed Forces for their ability to support regional and international collective security and called on allies to continue to show unity “in support of our partner to counter those who seek to fuel insecurity, and, most importantly, to help Bosnia and Herzegovina take steady steps towards Euro-Atlantic integration.”
