Third president of Armenia said that April war cannot be compared  with military actions in Tavush
ArmInfo.The military actions in Tavush and the April four-day war cannot be compared.  Third President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan stated this on August 19 at a press conference. The third president noted that there is a huge difference between  large-scale hostilities, which were fought over an area of more than  200 km, and a military clash that took place on an area of several  hundred meters. "I am glad that our armed forces showed their best side in Tavush and  confidently fulfilled the important task assigned to them. And now no  one can talk about the fact that our army is not combat-ready. I  would like to note that after the ceasefire concluded in 1994, there  have been numerous cases of improvement by the Armenian side of its  positions in different directions of the border," Sargsyan stressed.   Sargsyan also stated that the Armenian side did not know in advance  that Azerbaijan intended to unleash large-scale military actions in  April 2016. "In this case, there is some omission in the work of the  Armenian intelligence. However, it should be noted that even the most  advanced intelligence structures cannot have complete information,"  the third President of Armenia assured. He stressed that the US  intelligence services are the best in the world, however, even they  did not have information about the tragedy that occurred on 11  September.
