Two Georgian peacekeepers have been distinguished for their service within the European Union’s training mission in the Central African Republic, receiving awards from officials in Bangui.


Senior Lieutenant Aleko Pirtskhalaishvili, Deputy Commander of the National Guard of Georgia platoon and Sergeant Giorgi Tsukhishvili, an interpreter from a support group working in the mission, received their distinctions last week.


They were awarded by Henri Wanzet Linguissara, Interior Minister of the Central African Republic and Eric Gerard, Ambassador of France to the CAR, for their contribution to the EU Military Training mission in the Republic (EUTMRCA).
