Portuguese involvement in EU military mission to Bosnia “completed”

Portugal has contributed 177 troops of its National Republican Guard (GNR) to the European Gendarmerie Force (EUROGENDFOR) in Bosnia since 2007.
EUROGENDFOR was created by five EU-members – Portugal, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain – with Romania joining in 2009. Its troops took part in policing and peacekeeping operations in Bosnia.
“Italy (…) announced its contingent will be withdrawn [from Bosnia] in late October 2010. Spain has also decided to withdraw pr the same date. Therefore, the GNR’s mission has been completed, and the Portuguese troops will not be replaced in October”, the Interior Ministry said in the statement.
