PanARMENIAN.Net – The government of Armenia is planning to gradually transition to a professional army and significantly change the structure of conscription, according to a five-year action plan unveiled on Wednesday, August 18.

The Army reform plan envisages both structural and conceptual changes, and the government is going to reduce the term of military service and involve more contract troops, taking into account the prospects for the development and improvement of military service.
