There are some 7 thousand Eufor soldiers in Bosnia.
In a HARDtalk interview on Monday 28 February, Jon Sopel talks to the Commander of Eufor in Bosnia, Major General David Leakey.
In December last year the European Union took charge of the troops enforcing the peace in Bosnia.
There are some 7 thousand soldiers there wearing EU cap badges and insignia.
This matters for Bosnia - and it is no less significant for Europe. Is this the European Union taking an important step towards becoming a fully fledged military power?
Major General David Leakey is commander of the Eufor forces in Bosnia. He talks to Jon Sopel.
