Iskander missile system is a weapon that is capable to cool a hothead while making a decision, Armenian Defense Minister Vigen Sargsyan said.
“I can present the algorithm. The function and characteristics of this weapon enable to cause irreparable damage to the infrastructure of the country against which it is used. So, the decision to use Iskanders will be closely linked to the development of the situation,” Sargsyan said in an interview with Sputnik.
The defense minister noted that although the Iskander systems were considered to be a deterrent weapon, they could be used as “a guaranteed strike weapon if the necessity arises.”
The Minister added that Iskander missile systems are owned by the Armenian armed forces and are managed by Armenian army officers.
"The fact that Iskanders were delivered to Armenia I think is obvious, because everyone clearly saw them. The fact that they belong to the Armenian Armed Forces I can confirm with absolute certainty," Sargsyan said.
The minister said that other questions, such as “when, how much, what payment terms and others” are a top secret.
