Armenian military acquires new modern arms
STEPANAKERT, NOVEMBER 4, ARTSAKHPRESS-ARMENPRESS: “Today the Armenian Armed Forces are acquiring mostly new modernized weaponry. In both 2019 and 2020 we will acquire solely new and modern capacities from various countries both contractually and through credit programs,” he said.
Speaking on budget allocations, Tonoyan said as Defense Minister he would’ve wanted to double and triple the budget. But given the state budget’s opportunities and the economic opportunities he said he considers the budget “sufficient” to properly respond to all challenges.
