YEREVAN, DECEMBER 24, ARMENPRESS. The defensive potential of the Armenian side during 2012 grew. Military expert Davit Jamalyan stated this during the press conference convoked on December 24. In his opinion the unprecedented demonstration of the tactical long-range missiles during military parade in Stepanakert is to prove this thesis. As reports “Armenpress” Jamalyan stated: “It’s notable that the demonstration of missiles was a rather serious incentive to abstain war and prevent rival’s aggression.”
Among other things the expert noted that in case of necessity the Defense Army can send those missiles to their addressee and this could not remain unnoticed in Azerbaijan. Jamalyan stressed: “We involved missiles in demonstration to calm down hot heads in Baku.” Also Davit Jamalyan emphasized the importance of two large manoeuvres held in Armenia and Artsakh during the current year.
In Davit Jamalyan’s opinion those subversive acts of the Azerbaijani side are mostly conditioned with political campaign, than military necessity.
