TBILISI, October 11 (Itar-Tass) — NATO considers Georgia the partner in the Alliance’s new mission in Afghanistan that will start in 2014, Georgian permanent representative to NATO Gega Mgaloblishvili told Georgian journalists on Wednesday, October 10.
“We laud the fact that the Alliance considers Georgia one of the leading countries with which NATO will continue training and assistance to Afghanistan,” Mgaloblishvili said.
The Georgian official said Tbilisi “has the obligations before the strategic partners, including the Alliance. Being a responsible state Georgia will fulfil its obligations”.
Irakly Alasaniya, who is nominated to the position of Georgia’s defence minister, said, “Georgia will continue to take part in the peacekeeping operation in Afghanistan.”
Georgian peacekeepers stay in Afghanistan from November 2009. From April 2010 the number of the Georgian contingent reached 925 servicemen.
