BRUSSELS, February 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Georgia will not withdraw its troops from Afghanistan within the NATO mission in 2014 after the coalition forces leave the country, Georgian Prime Minister Irakly Garibashvili said at a meeting with NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen on Wednesday.
Georgian servicemen will take part in NATO’s rapid reaction force, the Georgian premier said.
The NATO secretary-general praised Georgia’s role in preserving its contingent in Afghanistan.
NATO’s military campaign in Afghanistan should be ended by withdrawing all forces from the country by the end of 2014. A small group of NATO instructors and advisers numbering 8,000-13,000 people will stay in Afghanistan to offer consultations to government forces.
At present, international forces in Afghanistan number up to 90,000 servicemen.
