Georgia to join NATO Multinational Military Police Battalion
Starting from 2020 Georgia will join the NATO Multinational Military Policy Battalion, composed of military police units of Croatia, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia, Agenda.ge reports.
The Battalion, or its elements, were allowed to be deployed from 2013 to any area of NATO operations where the need arises for coordinated multi-national police activities.
"We are happy that the decision is positive and from 2020, we, in the format of the military police, will be involved in different missions, exercises in the format of NATO. This is another recognition of our abilities and the expression of support,” Georgian Defence Minister Levan Izoria stated in Croatia earlier today, after the meeting with his Croatian colleague Damir Krsticevic.
The Georgian Military Police platoon will be included in the battalion.
The ministers also signed a declaration for further development of defence and military ties.
