In his address, Minister Crnadak emphasized that Bosnia and Herzegovina as a member of the United Nations, is committed to preserving peace, respecting the rule of law and protecting human rights.

He pointed out that BiH's engagement in the UN system is a visible and significant component since Bosnia and Herzegovina is actively involved in facing international crises and UN peacekeeping missions.

He also recalled the fact that BiH supports the Peace Support Mission (A4P) and the Declaration on Common Commitments in UN peacekeeping missions, as well as the implementation of the Agenda for Women, Peace and Security and its priorities, which ensures full, equitable and meaningful participation of women in all phases of the peace process.

When it comes to promoting gender policy in the context of peacekeeping operations, the minister stressed that BiH has undertaken steps to increase the number of women in peacekeeping operations, stated the Public Relations Office of the MFABiH.
