YEREVAN (Armenpress/Yerkir)–Increasing the efficiency of the Armenian border defense is in the interest of the entire international community–US Ambassador John Evans said during the opening ceremony of a new training center for Armenian border troops.
John Evans said the US government is happy to help Armenia train its border guards and strengthen its national borders.
"The whole world should be interested in non-proliferation. For a sovereign state like Armenia the border defense becomes a priority issue and we are glad to render assistance in such an important matter," said Evans.
Chief of Armenia’s national security service Gorik Hakobian said that since 2001 the US government has provided significant support to Armenian border troops in the form of vehicles–surveillance and radio-communication devices–and computers.
