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.

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.
