Foreign Policy: Armenia’s input to Afghanistan’s security maintenance important

PanARMENIAN.Net - In his report published in Foreign Policy magazine, Commanding General of the U.S. Army Europe, Lieutenant General Mark P. Hertling stressed Armenia’s role in maintenance of security in Afghanistan.

“The fact that Armenia created brigade-sized peacekeeping and NATO-compatible units is an extremely positive development. These units, which are specifically non-aligned with operations in Nagorno Karabakh conflict, are largely manned by professional soldiers, not conscripts, and are led by English-speaking, western-trained officers. At a glance during my visit, they also appear better trained than line forces occupying positions along the Karabakh line-of-contact.

With America's continued support, the Caucuses will remain a source of stable, reliable, interoperable partners who are the foundation of future regional and global security,” the report reads.
