And another question is, according to what logic  should these reforms take place, according to what schedule they  should run, what issues to raise.

It is very important that, without harming healthy and competitive  traditions, the logic of our army and the Armed Forces, we will be  able to build  a new logic, new tactics, a new strategy that will  bring success to our army and our Armed Forces. Because the Armed  Forces, the army are the guarantors of our country's security," the prime minister said.
