Beginning March 1 Slovakia became the commanding country of a sector of the ALTHEA international peacekeeping operation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the SITA newswire reported.

"The Slovak Republic is taking over the command as the leading country in the “South” region from Germany. It lies south of Sarajevo and is one of four large sectors into which Bosnia and Herzegovina is divided," said the Brigadier General Pavel Macko of General Staff of the Slovak Armed Forces to SITA when taking command.

Together with Slovak soldiers, troops from Turkey and Switzerland, two countries which also have so-called LOT (Liaison Observation Team) Houses in the area, are deployed in this region. Slovakia, which coordinates military units in southern and south eastern areas of Bosnia, has three LOT Houses.
