The armed forces personnel were transferred temporarily on the basis of a NATO decision on the suspension of the mission in Iraq adopted over the weekend.

“14 members of the Croatian Armed Forces have been transferred to Kuwait and 7 members of the 2nd Croatian contingent whose mission has been completed will return to Croatia. We are following the security situation with our allies and appropriate decisions will be made in agreement with them," said a statement from the Ministry of Defence.
