The Georgian parliament approved Friday President Saakashvili's initiative to more than double the country's peacekeeping contingent in Iraq
The Georgian parliament approved Friday President Saakashvili's initiative to more than double the country's peacekeeping contingent in Iraq. The bill, passed by a 142-2 vote, authorizes the increase in personnel from 850 to 2,000. Deployment of the extra contingent is to start July 15. A Defense Ministry spokesman said depending on rank, Georgian servicemen in Iraq earn from $1,100 to $3,000 a month. Georgian "blue helmets" are deployed in Baghdad and Baaqub as part of a U.S. peacekeeping continent. No Georgian servicemen have been killed since 2002, when the country joined an international peace mission in Iraq.
