Touching upon the dismissal of Artak Davtyan from the position of chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Armenia, newly appointed Chief Advisor to the President of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), Lieutenant General Artur Aghabekyan told Armenian that he regrets that Artak Davtyan dismissed.

“On the one hand, I regret that he was dismissed, but on the other hand, it is a fact that the new chief, Onik Gasparyan, is a very professional and well-prepared general, and I am certain that he will play a major role in the management, strategic planning and preparation of the Armed Forces,” he said.

In May 2018, Artur Aghabekyan had expressed his concern about the appointment of Artak Davtyan and had said the following: “I have known Artak since 1994 when he was the chief of the staff of the regiment in Meghri, and I played a major role in his future career. It is my duty to sound the alarm that the most unprepared general has been appointed to the position that requires the highest sense of responsibility. I am sincerely worried.”
