At the Peace Implementation Council (PIC) meeting on 26-27/02/2008 in Brussels, Miroslav Lajcák, EU Special Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina, met members of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Following the successful negotiation of the Dayton Peace Agreement in November 1995, a Peace Implementation Conference was held in London on 8-9/12/1995, to mobilise international support for the Agreement. The meeting resulted in the establishment of the Peace Implementation Council (PIC). The PIC comprises 55 countries and agencies that support the peace process in many different ways, by assisting it financially, providing troops for SFOR or directly running operations in Bosnia and Herzegovina. There is also a fluctuating number of observers. Since the London conference, the PIC has already met 5 times, the latest in 2000 in Brussels.
