Armenian Defence Minister Serzh Sarkisyan and US ambassador John
Ordway attended the opening ceremony of a hospital in the town of
Talin today. The hospital was refurbished at the expense of the
European command of the US armed forces.

“This programme has become yet another symbol of the successful
US-Armenian cooperation,” the US ambassador said.

Serzh Sarkisyan said the refurbishment of the hospital in Talin was a
“result of military cooperation with the USA which allows us to
address not only military but also social issues”.

The defence minister expressed his confidence that “military
cooperation between the USA and Armenia will successfully develop in
the future”.

The refurbishment of the Talin hospital cost 236,900 dollars. It will
be the only hospital in Aragatsotn Region and will also serve the
rural communities of Shirak and Armavir regions.
