”Such a prompt response by the international community to the Ministry's request for assistance points out to a very constructive and progressive role and contribution of the EU, the OSCE, the UNDP and EUFOR in creating improved and safe environment for all citizens in BiH. It also demonstrates the readiness to financially assist BiH given the fact that the country could not support such endeavor from its limited operational budget."
