Davit Babayan Highlighted a Number of Successes in Politics, Economy, Culture and Sports
2017 can be described as a relatively calm year for Artsakh against the backdrop of the irreparable losses the country suffered during the 2016 April war, a spokesman for the Artsakh president David Babayan said in an interview with Panorama.am.
"We felt the effects of the war throughout 2017. We suffered fatalities this year as well. The human losses can in no way be repaired, but overall this year was relatively calm compared to 2016, 2015 or 2014," David Babayan said.
Touching upon the achievements of the country in 2017, the official highlighted a number of successes in politics, economy, culture and sports. Babayan pointed out the official opening of Vardenis-Martakert highway as a crucial achievement of this year.
"One of the most important achievements was the recognition of Artsakh by Michigan State, as well as the signing of agreements to form a sister city relationship with a number of French cities," he said.
David Babayan highlighted the works carried out in the defense sphere, especially the border strengthening measures, due to which the number of fatalities reduced this year.
