Azerbaijan will obstruct the unblocking of the region by expressing a destabilizing position. This is what acting Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan said in response to MPs’ questions during today’s question-and-answer session with government officials in parliament.
According to him, the unblocking of communication paths and de-blockage of Armenia must be priorities for the country’s authorities.
The acting Prime Minister stated that the government’s strategic direction is the ensuring of Armenia’s external security and that the Armenian-Russian joint group of troops and the joint air defense system are cornerstones.
“After this process, we will need to seriously reform the Armenian army and have a professional army from the strategic perspective. Our objective is to see a significant change of the demographic situation and essentially improve the quality of education,” he said.
