“As President and Supreme Commander I report to you, the strength of our army is growing every day. Weekly we buy new weapons. Partners help us. The army earned defense enterprises. I personally am on the transfer of weapons and equipment to the troops. This is not a renovated, but a modernized technique, and sometimes a completely new and modern weapon. We are increasing the cash support of our soldier and officer, ”he added.
