YEREVAN. – Defense Minister David Tonoyan does not reveal the secrets about new arms supplies to Armenia.
During a briefing on Friday, and commenting on possible supplies of armament surpassing the Russian-made Iskander ballistic missiles to Armenia, the minister noted that this will be reported on once it appears.
In response to the question of whether Russia may change as the major arms supplier of Armenia, the minister ruled out nothing, and stated that the best armaments are now being procured—and at affordable prices—for the needs of the Armenian Armed Forces, and it does not matter from which country.
“But it must also be borne in mind that various countries have their own internal restrictions on the supplies of military products,” the minister added.
Speaking of the Russian Su-30 fighter jet deliveries to Armenia, the defense minister suggested waiting until the end of the year, or early 2020.
“Now our experts are working,” Davit Tonoyan said. “There are contractual obligations.”
