Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and President of Artsakh Bako Sahakyan visited several sections of the northern borderline.
They were accompanied by the head of the General Staff of the Republic of Armenia Armed forces Artak Davtyan, Artsakh Republic defense minister Karen Abrahamyan and other officials.
Nikol Pashinyan and Bako Sahakyan were briefed on the current situation at the borderline, engineering works as well as technical equipment.
Head of the Armenian government emphasized the importance of the continuous development of the armed forces and the military industry and noted that the army should become a locomotive for the development of the economy.
Pashinyan stressed the importance of introducing a new food order in the armed forces and noted that this could promote the development of agriculture, as agricultural products are purchased from the farmer directly.
“I am happy to state that I see confidence in your eyes, confidence in homeland and our future,” he said. “Our common is a goal to strengthen collective confidence, first of all confidence in each other, the power of each of us and our collective strength. I hope that you feel that the authorities of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh do not forget for a second about the soldier who is holding the border”.
The armed forces experience major changes, and some of soldiers will feel these changes very soon, Pashinyan said.
“They say security, army is a priority, but I say that security, army is the number one priority,” he added.
