COURSE AND PERSPECTIVES OF INTERNATIONAL MILITARY COOPERATION

International military cooperation is one of the most important instruments of defense policy. On multisided and two-side surfaces of this sphere the Defense Ministry pursuits two basic aims. First aim – development of defense system introducing leading international experience, second – create international guarantees to ensure security of Armenia.

Among them are peaceful people and soldiers. These data were presented by Head of “Relatives of missing people council” NGO Rimma Arakelyan during the briefing on April 11.

TALISH JINGLES

According to some data, Talishes are 3 mln, and 1,5-2 mln live in the southern zone of Azerbaijan Republic. Our programs are broadcasted from Shoushi and cover the southern and northern territories of Talishstan. Our waves are also aimed at living in Azerbaijan Talishes where their culture and language are violated, and they are now in front of the threat of disappearance. Our programs are on northern and central Talish dialects as well as on Azeri language since some part of Talish people have forgotten their language bur still preserve their national identity.
