17,000 Assault Rifles Missing After 44-Day War, Armenian Minister Raises Security Concerns


17,000 Assault Rifles Missing After 44-Day War, Armenian Minister Raises Security Concerns

In a press conference held on Monday, Minister of Internal Affairs of Armenia, Vahe Ghazaryan, revealed a troubling development stemming from the aftermath of the 44-Day War. Approximately 17,000 assault rifles have gone missing, raising serious concerns about the security and stability of the region.


Ghazaryan expressed the government's deep unease regarding the disappearance of these weapons and ammunition. He emphasized the gravity of the situation, stating, "We are concerned about the issue related to weapons and ammunition. And we declared 2023 the year of the fight against illegal arms trafficking and achieved good results.”


The Minister's acknowledgment of the missing assault rifles sheds light on the challenges Armenia faces in the post-war period. The country has been actively addressing the issue of illegal arms trafficking, declaring 2023 as the year dedicated to combating this threat. Despite the efforts, the revelation of the significant number of missing assault rifles underscores the complexities involved in securing and managing weapons in a post-conflict environment.


The disappearance of such a large quantity of assault rifles raises questions about the potential consequences for regional security and stability.
