Georgia to cut Iraq force from 2,000 to 300
Fri Sep 14, 2007 7:58am EDT

TBILISI (Reuters) - Ex-Soviet Georgia will cut its
troops in Iraq to less than a quarter of the current
contingent by next June, the defense minister said
on Friday.

"The Georgian contingent is being reduced to around
300 servicemen from 2,000," Defense Minister David
Kezerashvili told journalists.

"We had an original agreement with the United States
that we would cut our military contingent in Iraq in
summer 2008."

ally and is seeking membership of NATO and the
European Union, boosted its military force in Iraq
from 850 to 2,000 earlier this year.
