YEREVAN, July 23 (Xinhua) -- The Southern Military District of Russia has said its military base in Armenia continues a regular update of its stockpile of modern military vehicles and equipment, Armenpress news agency reported Wednesday.

The Russian military base has modernized about 40 percent of its weapons this year, the report said.

When the former Soviet Union collapsed in the early 1990s, Armenian gained independence but agreed to retain the military base in Gyumri, the second largest city in the country.

More than 3,000 Russian troops are currently stationed at the base.
