On 21 February the Parliament of Georgia approved with 106 votes to 1 sending troops to the Central African Republic to participate in the European Union's peacekeeping mission.

"EU requested Georgia to participate in a mission in the Central African Republic, in an EU-led peacekeeping operation. The proposal was based on the consideration that the Georgian military forces have enough experience to deal with such a mission. Georgian military servicemen are capable of completing any task," Georgian Security Council Secretary, Irina Imerlishvili said.

The mission is scheduled to begin in May 2014 and will last for six months. The aim of the mission is to ensure security in the capital of the Central African Republic.
