U.S. Department of State Representatives Visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina

16.06.2016

In mid-June 2016, ITF representatives hosted U.S. Department of State's Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement Program Manager for Europe Ms. Cat Ramsey in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Ms. Ramsey joined the ITF team during a field visit to “Kruševo 2” demining project in the Municipality of Olovo that is being implemented by the Mine Detection Dog Center with the Support of the U.S. Department of State.

The field visit also entailed a visit to Doboj, Ilijaš, Goražde and Sarajevo (Stari Grad) to various demining sites that were cleared or are planned to be cleared with U.S. support through ITF. During the visit, representatives of ITF, U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina Mine Action Center, as well as representatives of affected municipalities and implementing partners experienced first-hand the importance of demining and the impact mined areas have on local communities.
