ArmInfo. The German command of "North" peacekeeping forces in
Afghanistan has made a decision on awarding 20 Armenian peacekeepers
medals and Certificates of Merits.

As Armenian Defense Ministry's press service reports, the awarding
ceremony was recently held near the chapel in the airport of Kunduz
town built by the Armenian peacekeepers. The German command highly
appreciated the diligence and industry of the Armenian peacekeepers.

To recall, Armenia has been taking part in a peacekeeping mission in
Afghanistan since January 2010. The Armenian contingent, numbering
40 servicemen, operates among the German north regional command and
ensures security of Kunduz airport.
