He added that during the recent war the units of the ministry played a very active role: “I stress the importance of further development of the rescue service, the ministry in general, by also taking into account the challenges facing us, our needs, but of course based on what has existed effectively before this moment”.
Former minister Felix Tsolakyan thanked the PM for the joint work and wished success to the new minister.
In his turn Andranik Piloyan thanked the PM for the high trust and stated: “As the sector is something new for me, and I am coming here from the army, I think that during my work I will try to invest the good and the positive I had in the Army here, and the step taken by the leadership of Mr. Tsolakyan in this structure I will try to add it by one or two”.
