19 December, 2013
It is necessary to define all the key priorities to bolster Georgia’s defense power. No wonder, then, that the Defense leadership of the country gives the highest importance to strengthening anti-tank and missile systems. Following the bitter August 2008 war experience, the previous authorities tried to enhance the robustness of the Georgian army.

Georgia not to leave Afghanistan
19 December, 2013
Two Georgian battalions (1600 soldiers) will remain in Afghanistan till the completion of the ISAF mission at the end of 2014. The decision was disclosed during an official meeting between high ranking officials from the Georgian Defense Ministry and their colleagues from the Pentagon, in the course of an official visit of the Georgian delegation to America. The news comes in contrast to earlier informal reports from the Defense Ministry that it was considering cancellation of the next rotation of one of the two battalions in the summer of 2014, in order to reduce the size of the Georgian contingent staying in Afghanistan till the end of the ISAF mission from 1600 to 900.
