Armenia conducts great works to reveal and prevent crimes, President Serzh Sargsyan said in an interview to ARMENIA TV, commenting on the work of law enforcement agencies.
“Firstly I want to state that the work of each agency, even it is sufficient enough, needs improvement. This is not only my approach, this is a normal logical approach, one should not remain on the same path, it’s always necessary to have a progress”, the President said, adding that it’s necessary to be cautious on different indexes. “Unfortunately, crimes, murders, of course, are taking place in any country, including Europe, the United States. Unfortunately, I must say that the same is taking place in Armenia. The problem is how the system manages to reveal these crimes and most importantly to prevent them. In this sense I think a great work is being done in our country, and if we just look at the numbers, for instance, the murders in Armenia decrease every year. For example, this year the intentional murders, let me not mention numbers to avoid speculations as the year has not ended yet, have decreased by nearly 15-20%, and all scandalous murders, almost all, have been revealed and the murderers have been arrested. God willing, we will have a situation one day that there will be no murders in our country, but no country is insured from crimes”, the President said.
Talking about Yerevan’s security, the President said the most accurate approach is our own feeling and the opinion of our guests. “It would be better to go out in the evening, thanks God, although it is mid-December, but there is no shortage of tourists in Yerevan, ask how he/she feels in Yerevan and whether he/she will be able to reach, for instance, from restaurant to hotel alone at night of 1, 2 o’clock. In this sense, I think, our situation is satisfactory, although we have no right to be satisfied with these achievements, we should really be a very safe country inside and within our borders”, Serzh Sargsyan said.
