Albanian Defense Minister Gazmend Oketa said on Wednesday that his country will send 95 more soldiers to Iraq.

Albania has already had 120 troops serving under U.S. command at Mosul airport in southern Iraq.

Oketa said the new batch of troops, who could leave for Iraq in September, will serve in another part of Iraq, but still under U.S. command.

Albania has been taking part in EU-led mission in Bosnia, NATO-led mission in Afghanistan and the U.S.-led forces in Iraq.

The western Balkan country has also promised to send more troops to Afghanistan to help train the Afghan army, to Chad and the Central African Republic to join the EU peacekeeping mission there.

Albania, along with Croatia signed accession protocols with NATO earlier this month after they were invited to join the 26-member alliance at a NATO summit in April.
