U.S. Navy Chief Discusses Growing Defense Ties With Armenia

October 29, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Defense Minister Seyran Ohanian and the visiting U.S. Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus praised growing military cooperation between Armenia and the United States after holding talks in Yerevan on Monday.

Both men said defense links between their nations will continue to deepen in the coming years. Mabus announced in this context that the U.S. Marine Corps subordinate to him plans to train more Armenian military personnel through joint exercises.

“The United States Marine Corps reporting to the secretary of the Navy helps to explain why the secretary of the navy comes to a country with no ocean,” he told a joint news conference during what was the first-ever visit to Armenia by a U.S. Navy and Marine Corps chief.
