The Ministry of Defense is implementing reforms in the field of military education. A Military Academy will be established in Armenia. Minister of Defense Suren Papikyan stated about this at Wednesday’s special meeting of the National Assembly Standing Committee on Defense and Security.
According to him, the Vazgen Sargsyan Military University and the Marshal Armenak Khanperyants Military Aviation Institute are planned to be joined, thereby establishing the new Military Academy.
This academy will have separate departments, including training for service in the border guard troops.
"Before that reform, we did not have a separate educational institution to train officers of the border guard troops," the defense minister noted.
Papikyan added that the graduates of the military schools of Armenia and Russia were serving in these border guard troops.
