ArmInfo.Third President of Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, touched upon his statement made in 2016 in Germany that Armenian soldiers fought with weapons of the 1980s. During the press conference, Sargsyan noted: "I meant that despite  the fact that Azerbaijan is arming itself to the teeth and the  members of the OSCE Minsk Group turn a blind eye to this, the  Armenian army is capable of defending its homeland. As you remember,  Germany chaired the OSCE that year. " After that, the third president of Armenia suggested that journalists  clarify whether there is an army in the world that does not have  weapons of the 1980s. <Take the example of the United States or  Israel. There are similar weapons. I will tell you even more, in  today's arsenal of the Armenian army, almost all small arms were also  produced in the 1980s. Our army also has weapons that were produced  in the 1940s and 1950s," Sargsyan stressed.
