The pension reform in Armenia is a political necessity, Secretary of Armenia's National Security Council, Artur Bagdasaryan, said at today's press-conference.
However, the legal norms of the reform need updating he added.
He thinks that distrust of citizens in the new pension reform is the main reason of their protest against the given reform.
He also added that legal guarantees may inspire trust. "Even very good reforms will fail in case of a wrong approach. For this reason we should measure trice and cut once", - Bagdasaryan concluded.
