HEIDELBERG, GERMANY--U.S. Army Europe and U.S. Air Force in Europe assisted the government of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) with the delivery of helicopter equipment, petroleum, lubricant and oil to Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Feb. 12.

The joint effort was part of a military-to-military exchange agreement that came a week after the region was hit by severe weather, heavy snow and intense cold, stalling many cities' ability to function and hampering the government's ability to conduct relief operations.

"[BiH] helicopters have been responding to this historic snowfall and record low temperatures by providing assistance to the citizens of the country," said U.S Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Patrick S. Moon. "The helicopters were running very low on lubricants and spare parts needed to conduct operations."

Moon said the helicopters have been an important factor in providing emergency supplies and assistance in many communities which were completely cut off.

"We really appreciate the work that has been done by EUCOM, USAFE, and USAREUR to provide these parts on a very urgent basis," Moon said.

The partnership between BiH and the U.S. will continue to be essential in further enhancing the relationship between the U.S. and Europe.

"It all comes together to professionalize the government," Moon said. "It helps the citizens realize how important the armed forces are and that they can provide service to them in a natural disaster like this one. It's really great to be a part of this team."

BiH's relief efforts are ongoing and they will continue to work with the U.S. for additional disaster assistance.
