Georgian army represented our country as solid and strong partner on the global scale in the Afghanistan missions. Therefore, Georgia, as noble and reliable partner country will withdraw its troops from Afghanistan in accordance to the coordinated schedule.
Since 2004 Georgian Defence Forces proved multiple times on the international scale that they are reliable and highly professional soldiers. Every Georgian is proud of the commandments frequently received from high level political and military officials of NATO.
I want to express my gratitude towards each and every soldier who participated in the missions and I want to especially honor our hero soldiers who died on active duty, who sacrificed their lives for strengthening global peace and security. The Georgian Defence Forces are ready to continue strengthening global security in coordination with our partners.
