The European Union has assumed responsibility for the peacekeeiping mission in Bosnia.
A new force called EUFOR that numbers about 7,000 troops will enforce the Dayton peace agreement that ended the bloody Bosnian war in 1995.
The change from NATO to EU on Thursday begins nearly nine years after NATO deployed 60,000 forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in what was the alliance’s first peacekeeping operation.
Good luck. And here’s hoping that Mladic and Karadzic are brought to justice.
