Armenia's parliament on Wednesday approved extending this ex-Soviet republic's small troop presence in Iraq for one year.
Lawmakers in the 131-seat parliament voted 85-19, with one abstention, to extend the mandate of the 46-member contingent.
The peacekeepers have been deployed in Iraq since January 2005. They serve under the Polish command. President Robert Kocharian and his government have sought to portray the deployment as a way to boost ties with Europe and the United States.
