"Army building will be a priority area next year too," Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev made remarks at the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers dedicated to the results of socioeconomic development in nine months of 2015 and objectives for the future.
"Army building is an area that is always in the spotlight. We always pay great attention to this sphere. This is natural, because Azerbaijan is in a state of war, the war is not over and the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is not a frozen conflict. This is clear to everyone, including the mediators dealing with this issue." added the head of state.
According to the President of Azerbaijan, army sphere will receive as much money as necessary: "The process of purchasing and manufacturing of new machinery, weapons and ammunition is currently under way. At the same time, military units and bases are built at the highest level. This year, we put into operation a large naval base. A new infrastructure is emerging in the regions close to the line of contact. Our fighting capacity is increasing." stated President Aliyev.
