He, and 5th Brigade Commander Brigadier Kliko, also discussed the upcoming Exercise IMMEDIATE RESPONSE with the USA – during which the airport at Tuzla will play host to a unit of Blackhawk helicopters. 

During a tour of the barracks the Commander was also able to see a piece of history – the now abandoned barracks that were once home to the US element of the NATO stabilization force in BiH - as well as construction of a new urban village that will be used to train soldiers for peace-support operations overseas.
