On July 6, U.S. Ambassador John Heffern joined Armenian Defense Ministry officials at Zvartnots Airport to send off 35 Armenian peacekeepers who will serve alongside American soldiers in Kosovo. Ambassador Heffern thanked the Armenian peacekeepers for their service and commitment to peace and security.
The Armenian peacekeepers in Kosovo will be based at the U.S. Bondsteel Military Base, near the city of Urosevac, and serve for 6-month rotations. In Kosovo, the peacekeepers will be responsible for conducting patrols, checkpoint security, riot and crowd control, and convoy activity. The joint Armenian-U.S. peacekeeping brigade in Kosovo is part of the NATO Kosovo Force (KFOR).
Since 2004 Armenia has deployed over 600 soldiers to KFOR.
