Accompanied by Minister of Healthcare Arsen Torosyan and Yerevan State Medical University Rector Armen Muradyan, the Premier toured the Center getting acquainted with its amenities, ongoing activities and programs aimed at developing the specialized rehabilitation center created for disabled soldiers.

Nikol Pashinyan thanked them for selfless service and called for the same will in the process of treatment, together with the Center’s professional team, urging the latter to do everything possible to ensure the patients’ speedy recovery and set strategic goals.

“Purposefulness extends the limits of the possible. Also, I want to express my gratitude to your families who handle this situation with great honor. I also ask you for forgiveness for the fact that the Motherland failed to make available all it was supposed to provide. We must collectively map out the problems, identify the priorities and try to address them proceeding from the formula: Motherland should love its citizen and vice versa,” Nikol Pashinyan emphasized, adding that the State will do its utmost to properly appreciate disabled servicemen’s contribution.
