Another group from the peacekeeping brigade of the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Armenia has left for Germany, where they will undergo training, and thereafter be transported to Afghanistan to carry out a peacekeeping mission.

Before departure, commander of the peacekeeping brigade Major-General Artur Simonyan spoke with the servicemen, encouraging them to carry out their service honorably and remain loyal to the traditions of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Armenia. Armenia has been taking part in NATO-led missions since 2010. Armenian servicemen carry out their mission under German leadership in the Afghani norther command.
