The USA expressed its condolences to the relatives of the two Georgian peacekeepers in Afghanistan - GHN.


They are connected with death of Lieutenant Mukran Shukvani and serious wound of Corporal Alik Gitolendia, who lost both legs.

"First Lieutenant Shukvani served bravely in leading his men and helping the Afghan people build a future free of fear and oppression. We mourn his loss, even as we salute the ongoing dedication and sacrifice of his fellow members of the 31st Battalion," the statement of the U.S. embassy to Georgia says.

"The Georgian Armed Forces and the people of Georgia are making vital contributions to realizing our shared objectives under NATO's International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan. The United States deeply appreciates and respects Georgia's contributions, and the sacrifices that come with them. We will honor First Lt. Shukvani's memory in continuing our work to build a peaceful, stable Afghanistan," the document concludes.
