The “Nation-Army” concept or program still needs crystallization, it is not presented in the form of a single document, and the legislative changes within this concept and the reforms in the armed forces are often presented in a disputable way and create a general negative background.
Avetik Chalabyan, Chairman of the Board of Arar Civilizational Research Foundation, said this during the interview-press conference entitled “Security Issues of Armenia: Effectiveness of Reforms in the Defense Sector”at Media Center on December 1.
At the beginning of the press conference, he states that the term “Nation-Army” is not the idea of the Defense Ministry. “Zhirayr Sefilyan was the first to speak about the term “Nation-Army”, the Chairman of “ArAr” foundation said, who cooperates with the Ministry of Defense in the reforms of the armed forces. He admits that it is difficult to speak of this concept until it is presented as a single document for discussion. “This concept really needs crystallization,” he said.
