Military personnel representing four more countries left Almaty today
CSTO peacekeepers continue to be withdrawn from Kazakhstan. Military personnel representing four more countries left Almaty today: Armenia, Tajikistan, Belarus and Kyrgyzstan, Khabar 24 reports.
On their shoulders lay the task of protecting the strategic facilities of the metropolis. Immediately after loading equipment and personnel, the peacekeeping contingent were sent home. Kyrgyz units will get to their permanent deployment points on their own. Representatives of Armenia, Belarus and Tajikistan will be delivered home by Russian military transport aircrafts IL-76.
Mirovar Khushbakht, the First Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Tajikistan: "With our heads held high, we head home with confidence. The most important thing in this operation is, first of all, the issues of organizing interaction, security and defense of especially important facilities. We think that in the course of the upcoming exercises within the framework of the CSTO, we will work out this stage as well. I think that not only the contingent of Tajikistan coped with the task, everyone coped. Because the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan confidently stated that the peacekeeping mission, the first one, which was organized on the territory of the CSTO countries, has been successfully completed".
