In the "Urbat" discussion club, G. Isagulyan reminded that an Inter-departmental Commission was created in the beginning, 2006, by the RA President's decree, to work over the document. "RA Defense Minister, the Secretary of the National Security Council, Serzh Sarkissyan, had come out, February 16, with a report on the main principles of the national security. His report was taken as a basis for further work. Multiple amendments and additions have been introduced ever since. Large discussions of the developed project are underway at present", Isagulyan said.

"According to the decision made, the Strategy will be approved by the Government after the Inter-departmental Commission session., then it will be submitted to the President's approval", G. Isagulyan said. He did not call the exact terms of approval of the Strategy of National Security.
