Details about the participation of the Montenegrin Army in Iraq are not known yet. Montenegro, as NATO member, decided to actively and responsibly take part in decision-making process of NATO Alliance as well as their implementation. There is, therefore, possibility that soldiers of the Army of Montenegro be part of the mission in Iraq.
