Head of NSS: The work to suppress espionage activities is carried out  in full

ArmInfo.The work to suppress espionage activities is carried out in full. Head of the National Security Service (NSS) of the Republic of Armenia Eduard Martirosyan  stated this at a meeting of the Permanent Parliamentary Commission on  Defense and Security.

Martirosyan noted that the NSS is carrying out quite a lot of work to  protect state borders (Armenian-Iranian, Armenian-Georgian and  Armenian-Turkish), which gives tangible results. So, in 2018, 38  cases of suppression of state borders were revealed, in 2019 - 35  cases, and in the current year - only 4 cases. In addition, arrests  of wanted persons are also carried out at border areas, and the last  case occurred a few days ago.

The head of the NSS  pointed out the requirement to equip certain  sections of the southern state borders with video monitoring systems,  especially taking into account the fact that part of the border areas  fall on uninhabited territories. According to him, the experience of  installing control systems is quite successful, which helps to  control borders tens of kilometers long, including the parallel use  of special equipment.

Martirosyan also announced about plans to improve the living  conditions of the officers serving in the border areas, and to  continue housing construction for these purposes.

He also touched upon the issue of creating an NSS training center in  Armenia, saying that the government allocated territory in Jrvezh  (the former school of ensigns) for these purposes, and there are  already plans to begin design work. "I hope that in the near future  we will be a training center staffed with good specialists," he said.
