YEREVAN, September 29. /TASS/. A separate peacekeeping brigade of the Armenian Armed Forces has received an international certificate, in accordance with which it will be able to send one battalion to peacekeeping operation zones on a par with NATO member-countries, the country’s Defense Ministry said on Tuesday.
"Over the past 10-11 years, Armenia has gained extensive experience in international peacekeeping, and Armenian peacekeepers have earned a reputation of reliable and professional colleagues among international organizations and partner countries," said First Deputy Defense Minister David Tonoyan. As a result, the agencies coordinating UN peacekeeping forces asked us to prepare and give the international community a professional resource that is needed for conducting peacekeeping operations." In this regard, Armenia was one of the countries that were invited to the UN summit on peacekeeping operations, which was held in New York, Tonoyan said.
