Georgian Troops in Kabul Placed Under U.S. Command
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 3 Jun.'13 / 19:26

A Georgian platoon, which served in Kabul as part of ISAF mission under the French command, will continue their service in the Afghan capital under the U.S. command as French troops gradually pull out of Afghanistan.

The Georgian Defense Ministry said on Monday that Georgian unit of up to 50 soldiers was redeployed from the Camp Warehouse to Camp Phoenix, which is used primarily by the U.S. forces involved in the training of the Afghan army.

Like at the Camp Warehouse, “providing security” of the base is the Georgian troops’ main task at the Camp Phoenix, MoD said.

Two Georgian infantry battalions serve alongside with the U.S. marines in the Helmand province in southern Afghanistan.  

Georgia has over 1,560 soldiers in Afghanistan making the country the largest non-NATO troop contributor to the ISAF mission.
 
Total death toll of the Georgian soldiers in the ISAF mission is 22.
