ArmInfo. The professional activity of an officer requires concentration of intellectual, moral and psychological strength. This opinion was expressed by the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan in the administrative complex of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia on July 22, where the ceremony of awarding diplomas to graduates of military schools takes place.
According to the Prime Minister, today's event symbolizes the generation change in the Armed Forces of Armenia. "Today people are present here, who were at the origins of the liberation of Artsakh, officers of high rank who carried out an impressive service in the RA Armed Forces. There are also graduates who receive the officer's first rank," he explained.
According to the head of government, the title of officer requires great will, since it involves a great deal of responsibility and the ability to unconditionally execute orders. To be an officer, he said, also means sometimes to proceed with the implementation of such orders, which do not always guarantee a return trip home. It is also the ability to be a competent commander who is able to give orders aimed at protecting the interests of the country he serves. The Prime Minister of Armenia emphasized the presence of women in the ranks of graduates of military schools, which is an indication of the transformation in Armenian society, where, in fact, women have great potential.
The head of the Armenian government wished graduates of general's stars, which would be the result of assessing their merits in the service, rather than having "good friends and acquaintances." As the prime minister pointed out, Armenia is a pacifist country, in which the armed forces are the main guarantor of peace. Pashinyan recalled the words of the Chinese sages, who said that "talented generals win without war." "We need just such a world, state and society, where all potential adversaries would know that they should not fight with us," Nikol Pashinyan concluded.
