ArmInfo. Armenia must compensate for the aggressive policies pursued by a number of countries in the region containment policy. This was stated by the  Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan on December 13 at a meeting  on the budget allocations of the Ministry of Defense in 2020.

According to the Prime minister, security is a multicomponent factor  and carries both economic, political, and psychological, diplomatic  components. "But the security forces of Armenia and Artsakh, first  and foremost, are the armed forces, and in this context I consider  important the enormous changes in the army over these 1.5 years," he  said.

Contrary to some political speculations, as Pashinyan pointed out, an  unprecedentedly large number of weapons have been acquired over the  past few years. "We need armament not for war, but for peace, since  Armenia must compensate for the aggressive policies pursued by a  number of countries in the deterrence policy, and we are pursuing  such a defense policy by developing the armed forces," Nikol  Pashinyan noted.  In addition, as the prime minister pointed out,  serious steps are also being taken to improve the conditions of  service and the social guarantees of servicemen.
