Armenian Parliamentary Committee Chair Calls for Modernization of Army
Mkhitar Hayrapetyan, Chairman of the Armenian National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Science, Education, Culture, Diaspora, Youth and Sport, emphasized the role of science to ensure the security of the country following the recent war in Artsakh.
Hayrapetyan, at a parliamentary hearing today on the role of science and education in the country, said today’s hearings were a direct result of war.
He called for compiling data on pan-Armenian resources in the field of science.
Hayrapetyan also said there is an urgent need to modernize the army.
"Today, the task of all of us is to find the solutions that will let us have a safe and secure state in the future, to make Armenia one of the safest countries in the region. But we have a lot to do to achieve this. We must make decisions for the future," Hayrapetyan said.
