Vigen Sargsyan: We continue the work in five directions aimed at  making our army the most battle-ready in the region

ArmInfo."The Armenian armed forces continue to work in five directions so that our army became the most efficient in the region", Defense Minister Vigen Sargsyan  said at a meeting with voters.

The first direction, as the minister noted, is modernization of the  Armed Forces, both through imports and development of the  military-industrial complex of Armenia. "Today we have weapons, which  are fully produced in Armenia. We must develop both our  military-industrial complex and cooperation with our allies in order  to achieve greater results for small funds and the implementation of  a "smart program" for armament", the minister said.

The second direction, as the minister stressed, increasing the  security of servicemen by establishing along the entire perimeter of  the border and the line of contact of the newest special equipment".  This program will be consistent", he noted.

The third direction, according to Sargsian, is an increase in the  attractiveness of service in the Defense Ministry. "Already today we  offer the highest starting salary to our officers", he assured.

The minister also emphasized the increase of justice in the Armenian  armed forces. And in the end, Sargsyan stressed the importance of  increasing the effectiveness of the Armed Forces' expenditures. "We  must ensure that no one doubts about this issue", he said.
