Georgian servicemen to be sent to Afghanistan in the framework of the international peacemaking operation, will serve in the most acute conflict area - Gilmend Province, near the border with Pakistan.


The fiercest combats with Taliban are held in that area - the VZGLYAD.

"The participation of Georgia in this mission is of principal importance, especially because Russia expects the failure of the NATO operation in Afghanistan", said Petre Tsiskarishvili, MP, leader of pro-presidential majourity in the Parliament .

Previously Georgian military also participated in the operation in Iraq, but mostly guarded objects and escorted cargoes. This autumn Georgia is expected to send a company in Afghanistan [as a part of the French battalion], in spring - a battalion to join the American contingent.
