The Armenian parliament will hold a special session on Monday to
discuss an extension of the Armenia-NATO agreement on the involvement
of Armenian servicemen in the International Security Assistance Force
(ISAF) in Afghanistan, Armenian Defense Ministry press secretary
David Karapetian told Interfax.

The Armenian contingent in Afghanistan will increase by five men,
he said.

“Five instructors will be added to the Armenian peacekeeping contingent
in Afghanistan for training Afghan servicemen,” he said.

The Armenian parliament ratified the agreement with NATO on December
8, 2009.

So far, there are 40 Armenian servicemen, including 36 infantrymen,
three signal corps officers and a medic, in Afghanistan.
