In the past months, the European Union has allocated more than 7.2 million euros through the project “EU Support to Migration and Border Management in Bosnia and Herzegovina” to support Bosnia and Herzegovina’s efforts in helping migrants and refugees and improving the country’s border management capacities.
Within the project, International Organization for Migration (IOM) handed over a mini bus to the Border police of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
This donation will improve the efforts and everyday work of the Border Police, which has augmented due to the increased presence of migrants in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Mr. Slobodan Krstic, Deputy Director of BiH Border Police, received the keys from Mr. Peter Van der Auweraert, IOM Chief of Mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Sub-regional Coordinator for the Western Balkans.
“This type of vehicle will be of great help in improving the capacities of our operational team, who is dealing with the challenges of the migrant crisis”, said Mr. Krstic.
