Chief of Staff transfer of Authority Ceremony

Hungary is one of the biggest supporters of NATO in BiH. It provides some of our most senior staff and currently acts as our Contact Point Embassy in Sarajevo, helping to coordinate the activities of NATO allies

This week the Chief of Staff of the Hungarian Army visited Butmir. As well as discussing the Mission with NATO Commander General Folkestad, he met.

This included the outgoing Chief of Staff, Col Jozef Czuka and incoming Chief of Staff Col Ferenz Kiss.

Col Czuka formally relinquished authority to Col Kiss during a formal ceremony, attended by the Hungarian Ambassador.
