Armenia to use Iskander missiles ‘based on how situation develops’
PanARMENIAN – Armenia will make a decision to useIskander missile systems depending on the development of the situation, defense minister Vigen Sargsyan said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
“I can explain the algorithm. The functions and parameters of the weapon allow to cause irreparable damage to the infrastructure of the country, against which it can be applied. Accordingly, the decision to use the system will be closely connected with the development of the situation,” he said.
The minister also said that the Iskanders delivered from Russia belong to the armed forces of Armenia, and that the latter’s officers, who have completed special training, operate them.
As reported earlier, four Iskander systems have been delivered to Armenia and displayed for the first time at the military parade marking the 25th anniversary of the country’s independence.
