Two Macedonians to Keep the Peace in Lebanon

Two ARM officers to be deployed in UNIFIL Mission in Lebanon:

Macedonian Government passed a decision Wednesday on the country's participation in the United Nations' mission UNIFIL in Lebanon. 'We decided to send two officers with rank major in the UNIFIL Headquarters in Southern Lebanon', said Defense Minister Lazar Elenovski at a press conference.

This is the fourth mission the country is taking part in, and first under UN mandate. Macedonia has soldiers deployed in NATO-led ISAF Mission in Afghanistan, it is part of coalition forces in mission 'Iraqi Freedom', while army forces are also taking part in EU-led mission ALTHEA in Bosnia&Herzegovina. A total of 205 ARM soldiers and senior officers are deployed, 130 of whom in Afghanistan, 40 in Iraq, and the rest in B&H."
