Armenian Forces to Attend NATO Exercises

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–A group of Armenian officers left for neighboring Georgia to join counterparts from Austria–Azerbaijan–Canada–Ukraine–Greece–Lithuania–Romania–Britain–Bulgaria–USA–Turkey–Moldova–Hungary–Uzbekistan and Georgia to attend large-scale–multinational military exercises in Georgia–within the framework of NATO’s Partnership for Peace Program–called "Best Effort – 2002."

The contingent of Armenian soldiers from the peace-keeping battalion will leave for the Georgian Vaziani military base on June 14 to join about 700 soldiers from NATO member countries and another eight partner countries of the North Atlantic Alliance.

These are the second multinational NATO exercises to be held in Georgia. The first took place on the outskirts of the Black Sea port of Poti in the summer of 2001.
