The CROATIAN government has decided that members of the Croatian army will continue to participate in the KFOR peacekeeping mission, and that decision needs to be confirmed by the Croatian Parliament, the Kamenjar portal reports.
Croatian Minister of Defense Mario Banožić said at the Government session that it was proposed that in 2023 and 2024, up to 60 members of the Croatian Army and up to two helicopters of the Croatian Air Force would participate in KFOR.
Croatia has been participating in KFOR since 2009, and so far 1,358 members of the Croatian army have participated in that operation.
The Croatian government has also decided that members of the Croatian army will continue to participate in the EU naval operation in Somalia and in UN peacekeeping missions.
Banožić said that Croatia attaches importance to participating in operations and missions abroad, which, he added, actively contributes to building international peace and security, and strengthens its capabilities.
