PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia could apply for a third military loan from Russia, Defense Minister Davit Tonoyan said on Friday, August 3.

Later in December 2017, then Armenian president Serzh Sargsyan signed a law on the ratification of the agreement on a further $100 million defense loan with a maturity of 15 years.Russia was set to begin supplying arms to Armenia under the new defense loan agreement in 2018,

Tonoyan also said that the process of delivering weapons to Armenia under the $100 million loan agreement is currently underway.

Besides making use of loan funds, the Minister said, Armenia makes other arms purchases too, buying weapons “from all the corners of the world.”
