Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
A memorandum was signed yesterday, on 25th September 2012 in Moscow between HayPost and Russian Post, concerning the intention of the two postal operators to make express money transfers by means of "Forsage" system.
According to the memorandum, HayPost gets an exclusive right of "Forsage" system transfers over the Republic of Armenia. It means that express money transfers can be carried out from each of the 40.000 post offices of the Russian Post to each of the 900 post offices of HayPost and vice-versa.

This step will allow the postal operators of Russia and Armenia to develop the express money transfers between the two countries, the quality of the rendered services and the inclusion of regions in the provision thereof.
The delegation guided by Trust Manager of HayPost CJSC Mr. Juan Pablo Gechidjian has held several meetings recently in Moscow with the management of Russian Post, reaching agreements regarding the forthcoming intensification and the start of a new qualitative phase of cooperation. It is planned to activate the current procedures functioning between the postal operators of the two countries, resulting in faster and more efficient delivery of money transfers, parcels, letters and other postal items and services to addressees.
The post office network of HayPost CJSC is available all over the Republic of Armenia, particularly, in regions and all the rural communities.
