Greek was confirmed on February 16 as a taught language in the Military Institution of Vazgen Sargsyan in the Armenian capital of Yerevan.
The head of the military institute, Professor Khachatur Khachatryan, met with the Military Attaché of the Greek Embassy in Armenia, Colonel Gerasimo Avloniti.
During the meeting, the military cooperation between the two countries was discussed, along with the language courses.
The Hellenic Military Academy, known as the Evelpidon military institutions, and the Military Institution of Vazgen Sargsyan have been collaborating for a long time now and the relations have are healthy.
What does this mean?
Greece has always encouraged Armenians from abroad, especially within Greece and from Cyprus, to study and gain military education and experience at Evelpidon.
Offering Greek language courses not only helps Armenians to learn Greek and continue their military education at Evelpidon, but also to potentially send Greeks to study in Armenia.
Furthermore, Armenians who study at the Evelpidon have the upper hand in learning Greece’s military sector close-up.
Greece, if not the best in the world, has at least a top 5 Air Force.
For the past year, they have been heavily investing in military jets while collaborating with strong Middle Eastern countries like Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
They have been for many years one of the most dominant players in the air field.
Our relations have always been underrated.
It is time to push for more collaborations, projects and crucial work to be done.
It is not just about being brothers historically and culturally, let’s start to encourage and help each other grow.
It is recalled that last month the Greek Defence Minister met with the Armenian Ambassador to discuss bilateral defence cooperation.
