Armenian Army Prepared to Defend Itself against Adversaries

Armenian Deputy Defense Minister General Artur Aghabegian said Tuesday that the Armenian Military is prepared to resist any attack from its adversaries–adding that the Mountainous Karabagh Republic (MKR) Defense Forces demonstrated their abilities last month with week-long war exercises.

Aghabegian also referred to Azeri President Ilham Aliyev’s statement in Washington–DC–in which he said that Azerbaijan has been very active in peacekeeping efforts in Iraq.

Aghabegian said that such a statement can only be made by a person who does not know what it means to serve in an army and the logistics of a war zone.

"We have always publicized Armenian peacekeeping operations [in Iraq]," he said–adding that many countries have thanked Armenia for its participation.

Aghabegian said that if Azerbaijan is truly committed–"Let them show on TV what their peacekeeping forces are doing in Iraq."
