NATO to take minor role in Bosnia

NATO is soon to have only a minor role in Bosnia, with the EU taking over the operation:

NATO will only have a "residual role" in Bosnia once the EU takes over peace-keeping operations there, it was affirmed yesterday, following a dispute over who will run the show.

After what were reportedly tense negotiations on just how much say NATO would have over the EU-led operation, it emerged that NATO will only keep ‘a couple of hundred’ people, mostly civilians in the former Yugoslav republic.

The US has been keen to retain some control of the operation, something which has not gone down well in Brussels
