Armenia is still the world's third most militarized country behind only Israel and Singapore, a new report reveals. The country is also the most heavily militarised country in Europe, says the survey.
Compiled by BICC, the 2019 edition of the Global Militarization Index (GMI) presents the relative weight and importance of a country's military apparatus in relation to its society as a whole. The GMI 2019 covers 154 states and is based on the latest available figures (in most cases data for 2018).
Armenia’s standing in the report hasn’t changed since 2014.
In Singapore, standing too close can now get you 6 months in jail. #Interfax140Yesterday, 20:50
