Armenia deployed 34 peacekeepers to join the U.N. mission in Kosovo Thursday as part of a regular rotation, officials said.

It was the fifth rotation of Armenian peacekeepers to Kosovo, where they have served since 2004 alongside a Greek battalion, Defense Ministry spokesman Col. Seyran Shahsuvarian said.

Some 17,000 NATO-led peacekeepers are deployed to Kosovo, which has been administered by the U.N. and NATO since 1999 when a U.S.-led air war put an end to attacks by Serb forces against the province's ethnic Albanian majority.

Armenia has also deployed nearly 50 troops to Iraq to serve as part of the U.S.-led coalition.
