Azerbaijan sends more peacekeepers for NATO-led mission in Afghanistan

Jan. 10, 2018

Azerbaijan is increasing its role as a key partner in international efforts to increase security and stability in Afghanistan by sending 70 servicemen to Afghanistan as part of a NATO-led peacekeeping mission. In addition to troops, Azerbaijan supports NATO in other vital ways, such as allowing NATO planes to fly through Azerbaijan’s airspace and use the country’s airports. About 40 percent of all cargo destined for the NATO mission in Afghanistan passes through Azerbaijan’s capital of Baku.
