Davit Tonoyan: Armenia ready to attack Azerbaijan
Armenia has started purchasing offensive weapons, Armenian Defense Minister Davit Tonoyan said.
According to him, psychology is changing; approaches are changing. The minister noted that defending armies are always defeated.
"We are not going to remain in defensive positions. If there is a threat that hostiles will resume, Armenian armed forces will not linger," the minister said in an interview with the Public Television of Armenia.
When asked if that means that the Armenian army will go on the offensive, the defence minister replied, "Why not?"
Tonoyan added that Armenia cannot compete with Azerbaijan in terms of demography and economy; therefore, qualitative changes in the armed forces are necessary.
The Armenian defence minister said Armenia needs another $100 million loan provided by Russia for purchase of arms.
