“Part of the armament to be supplied under the $200 mln loan agreement with Russia has already been shipped to Armenia and put into operation,” Armenian Defense Minister Vigen Sargsyan told a press conference today.
According to him, the shipment of the rest of the armament proceeds according to the schedule. “We’re committed to receiving the equipment as soon as possible, as it is directly related to the combat readiness of the army,” the Minister said.
“We search for opportunities both on the Russian market and those of other partner countries to replenish the Armed Forces with equipment necessary,” Minister Sargsyan said.
“Although we have an efficient army, we have to look into the future, and develop faster than events,” he said.
