Bosnia and Herzegovina Military Attaché Colonel Zeljko Drljaca said in his speech:
“First of all, I would like to greet you all sincerely and welcome you to the 14th Parliament of the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina. I'd like to welcome you to this anniversary ceremony. This is an important indication that the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which is characterized by its professionalism, dedication, loyalty to the state of Bosnia and Herzegovina and its dignity, are gaining respectability.
Following the establishment of the Armed Forces and the zealous work of its members, Bosnia and Herzegovina has become an internationally trusted partner with a commitment to peacekeeping operations in various regions of the world where there are crises.
At home, the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina have shown the same self-sacrifice to the people of Bosnia, saving the lives of many civilians (especially in the 2014 floods), and have been recognized and made a very important partner in natural disasters or humanitarian events and catastrophic events.
But all this could not have happened without the support of many friendly countries, and within these countries, the Republic of Turkey, the Turkish Armed Forces and the Ministry of defense of Turkey are among the closest friends and supporters of the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Bosnia and Herzegovina. This evening is a wonderful opportunity for us to express our gratitude for their generous and unconditional support.”
The reception ended after the celebratory cake was cut.
