SLOVAKIA is the commanding country of the ALTHEA international peacekeeping operation in Bosnia and Herzegovina as of March 1, and will remain so for an unspecified period of time.

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

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.
