YEREVAN. – The Polish defense sector companies’ interest in the upgrading of Armenian tanks was no less than the respective interest by the Russian side.
Polish Ambassador to Armenia, Jerzy Marek Nowakowski, stated the aforesaid at a press conference on Wednesday.
The ambassador recalled that the Government and the Ministry of Defense of Armenia have decided that Russia will be upgrading the military tanks of Armenia.
“Of course, we accepted this [decision] with regret, but with understanding,” stated Nowakowski.
Armenia and Russia have launched a large-scale program of upgrading the main battle tanks of the Armed Forces of Armenia.
Before entering into a respective contract with Russia, however, Armenia was planning to carry out this program with a Polish company.
