Georgia sends its peacekeepers to Afghanistan
The 16th mountain battalion of the Defense Ministry will go to Afghanistan on August 29. At first Georgian peacekeepers will head for Germany to undergo two-week primary training. In mid-September they will go to Afghanistan to serve in the German peacekeeping forces. Captain Shavleg Tabatadze will command the Georgian peacekeeping platoon, which comprises 50 servicemen (six officers and 44 soldiers and sergeants). Georgian peacekeepers will patrol checkpoints and the internal territory of the military base. If necessary they will be involved in other operations. The term of their service in Afghanistan is fixed at 100 days. After that, they will be replaced by a new contingent. Thus, Georgia will be the first CIS country to send its peacekeepers to Afghanistan.
