Georgia May Send Commando Battalion to Iraq

A decision on whether to send Georgian special forces to Iraq has not yet been taken, according to an announcement to journalists yesterday by Irakli Batiashvili, the chairman of the Georgian parliament's committee on defence and security. He said that neither the parliament, nor the Georgian government had discussed this question yet. However, he added that 'it is theoretically possible.'

'Georgia is a member of the anti-criminal coalition and a US ally and should provide help if necessary,' stressed Batiashvili. A little earlier yesterday, the US ambassador to Georgia had announced that the commando battalion trained by the US might be sent to Iraq.
