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.

This fact was not quite expected by the soldiers who in the past used to receive a month-long intensive instruction to put a circle on the names of Shevardnadze and Saakashvili candidacies.
