Political Relations

Relations between Greece and Armenia are very strong both emotionally and historically, due to the co-existence of Greeks and Armenians during the Byzantine period and under the Ottoman Empire. Greece is one of the countries which officially recognise the Genocide of the Armenians by the Ottomans in 1915. Our country has been granting development and humanitarian assistance and has supported Armenia’s rapprochement with European institutions. Since the declaration of independence of Armenia the two countries have been partners within the framework of International Organisations (United Nations, OSCE, Council of Europe, BSEC), whilst Greece firmly supports further developing EU-Armenian relations.
