NHQSa Visit to AFBIH Demining Site

It is estimated that the safety of one in 12 inhabitants of BiH is directly affected by 'explosive remnants of war'.

That is why one of the priorities of NATO Headquarters Sarajevo, and our EU counterparts, is to assist the authorities in the destruction of mines and munitions.

The Commander of NATO Headquarters Sarajevo, General Eric Folkestad and his EUFOR counterpart General Platzer visited an AFBiH team working to clear landmines at a location just outside Sarajevo.
