Germany to help Armenia destroy old armored cars


Germany will allocate EUR 1 million to destruction of breakdown armored cars in Armenia.

Deputy Chief of Department of Defense Policy of the Armenian Defense Ministry Mher Israelyan and German Ambassador to Armenia Matthias Kiesler informed about this at NATO Information Center today.

Mher Israelyan stated that last week the parties reached an agreement on creation of the Trust Fund, and Matthias Kiesler added that they need to finalize some technical issues.

The Ambassador noted that by financing this project Germany helps Armenia to fulfill its commitments, provided for by the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe.

Mher Israelyan observed that a part of fund’s resources will be allocated to demining as well.
