January 23, 2002.--Referred to the Committee on International Relations 
                       and ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                      Washington, January 21, 2002.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: In my report to the Congress of July 24, 
2001, I provided information on the deployment of combat-
equipped U.S. Armed Forces to Bosnia and Herzegovina and other 
states in the region in order to participate in and support the 
North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)-led Stabilization 
Force (SFOR). The SFOR began its mission and assumed authority 
from the NATO-led Implementation Force on December 20, 1996. I 
am providing this supplemental report, based upon information 
provided to me and consistent with the War Powers Resolution 
(P.L. 93-148), to help ensure that the Congress is kept fully 
informed on continued U.S. contributions in support of 
peacekeeping efforts in the former Yugoslavia.
    The U.N. Security Council authorized Member States to 
continue SFOR for a period of 12 months in U.N. Security 
Council Resolution 1357 of June 21, 2001. The mission of SFOR 
is to provide a focused military presence in order to deter 
hostilities, stabilize, and consolidate the peace in Bosnia and 
Herzegovina, contribute to a secure environment, and provide, 
within its means and capabilities, selective support to key 
areas and key civil implementation organizations.
    The U.S. force contribution to SFOR in Bosnia and 
Herzegovina is approximately 3,100 personnel. United States 
personnel comprise just under 18 percent of the total SFOR 
force of approximately 17,500 personnel. During the last half 
of 2001, 19 NATO nations and 17 others, including Russia, 
provided military personnel or other support to SFOR. Most U.S. 
forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina are assigned to Multinational 
Division, North, centered in the city of Tuzla. Other U.S. 
military personnel are deployed to other countries in the 
region in support of SFOR. These deployments include 
approximately 50 U.S. military personnel presently deployed to 
Hungary and Croatia in order to provide logistical and other 
support. The U.S. forces continue to support SFOR efforts to 
apprehend persons indicted for war crimes. In the last 6 
months, U.S. forces have not sustained any combat-related 
fatalities.
    I have directed the participation of U.S. Armed Forces in 
these operations pursuant to my constitutional authority to 
conduct U.S. foreign relations and as Commander in Chief and 
Chief Executive.
    I am providing this report as part of my efforts to keep 
the Congress fully informed about developments in Bosnia and 
Herzegovina and other states in the region. I will continue to 
consult closely with the Congress regarding our efforts to 
foster peace and stability in the former Yugoslavia.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.

                                <all>
