YEREVAN.- Technical re-equipment of the Armenian Army is improved every day, said head of parliamentary committee on defense and national security Hrayr Karapetyan.

Hrayr Karapetyan met with the journalists on the eve of the Army Day celebrated on January 28.

He stressed that new technologies are introduced, bringing an example of the Armenia-produced unmanned aerial vehicle presented during the last year’s military parade.  

“Other states, including our neighbors, spend millions to purchase drones, particularly those produced in Israel. Meanwhile, Armenia is producing the unmanned aerial vehicles itself,” he said during a Thursday press conference dedicated to 20th anniversary of the Armenian Army.
