Azerbaijani Army’s peacekeepers have returned to Baku from Afghanistan, the Ministry of Defense reported on July 2.
These were the servicemen of the Azerbaijani Army who were sent to Afghanistan on June 16, according to the rotation plan.
The group of the servicemen were serving within NATO-led “Resolute Support” mission.
It should be noted that the peacekeeping mission of the Azerbaijani Army in Afghanistan began on November 20, 2002.
