Nation-Army (Azg Banak in Arm.) program launched by Armenia’s Ministry of Defense soon after the Four Day War in April of 2016 is a step in the right direction towards optimizing Armenia’s defense capacity and building an unbreakable bond between civilian life and military life for the citizens of Armenia. Despite any shortcomings that the program may have it is necessary for Armenia to have such a program in order to secure its national sovereignty for many years to come. Unfortunately, the program hasn’t gone far enough to also incorporate the resources of diaspora in defense of Armenia. Unquestionably, any attack against Armenia must be considered as an attack against all Armenians around the world and therefore will require a global Armenian response.
